Robotic Surgery Program
Huntington Memorial Hospital utilizes the state-of-the-art single port da Vinci Si surgical system – the latest generation of robotic surgery equipment designed to provide a minimally invasive, optimal experience in the operating room. In 2013, Huntington Hospital added a second, single port da Vinci, effectively doubling our robotic surgery capacity. The “Single-Site” technology from da Vinci Si allows for a single incision in the belly button and potential benefits include minimal scarring, less pain, low blood loss, fast recovery, a short hospital stay and high patient satisfaction. Clinical benefits aside, the good news is all of this efficiency translates to a better patient experience. The da Vinci Si features:
- Enhanced 3D, high-definition vision of operative field with up to 10x magnification
- New optional dual console allows second surgeon to provide assistance
- Superior visual clarity of tissue and anatomy
- Surgical dexterity and precision far greater than even the human hand
- Updated and simplified user interface to enhance OR efficiency
- New ergonomic settings for greater surgeon comfort
These exciting technological advancements provide Huntington Hospital surgeons with unparalleled precision, dexterity and control that allows for a minimally invasive approach for many complex surgical procedures.
The da Vinci’s advancements takes surgery beyond the limits of the human hand and underscores Huntington Hospital’s goal of extending minimally invasive surgery to the broadest possible base of patients. It can be used for multiple procedures, including, but not limited to: prostatectomy, hysterectomy, myomectomy, coronary artery bypass, mitral valve repair and colorectal surgery.
And it’s not only technology that sets Huntington Hospital apart. The addition of the da Vinci Si is greatly complemented by the hospital’s robotic surgery nursing team, which offers nearly ten years of dedicated experience working with surgeons conducting robotic surgeries. Together the team’s experience level is unrivaled in the greater San Gabriel Valley.
