da Vinci® ... Changing the Experience of Surgery at Good Samaritan Medical Center

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a condition that may require surgery, you owe it to yourself to learn about all of your medical options, including the most effective, least invasive surgical treatments available.

The da Vinci® Surgical System provides surgeons with an alternative to both traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy, putting a surgeon's hands at the controls of a state-of-the-art robotic platform. The da Vinci System enables surgeons to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions with unmatched precision.

Addressing Women's Health with Robotics

Physicians are usually successful at treating a variety of gynecologic conditions – particularly those affecting the uterus – with surgery. In spite of growing demand for minimally invasive procedures, the majority of these operations are still performed using large, abdominal incisions. These surgeries typically result in significant blood loss, and may mean several days in the hospital followed by weeks of recovery time.

Today, a less invasive surgical treatment option is available. If your doctor recommends surgery for your condition, you may be a candidate for one of three minimally invasive procedures using the da Vinci® robot including procedures to remove uterine fibroids (myomectomy), correct uterine and vaginal vault prolapse (sacrocolpopexy) and remove the uterus (hysterectomy).

These procedures use the state-of-the-art da Vinci Surgical System, designed to help your surgeon perform a more precise, less invasive procedure. For most patients, minimally invasive procedures performed with the da Vinci Surgical System can offer numerous potential benefits over traditional surgery, including:

  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Less risk of infection
  • Less blood loss and fewer transfusions
  • Faster recovery
  • Less pain and scarring
  • Quicker return to normal activities

In addition, for women diagnosed with uterine fibroids, da Vinci Myomectomy represents a minimally invasive surgical treatment designed to preserve the uterus.
