Minimally Invasive Surgery

Da Vinci Robot

Marshall Medical Center is pleased to offer the most advanced minimally invasive surgery using the da Vinci robotic system, a robot-assisted method of surgery that reduces blood loss, recovery time and pain. With this technology, we can offer our patients safe, minimally invasive options for surgery.

Robot-assisted surgery is especially useful in urological, gynecological, and general surgery procedures, in some cases taking the place of laparoscopic procedures. Until recently, it was only available only at large, multi-hospital systems, but we are proud to now offer it at Marshall. Many international clinical trials over the years have proven the system safe and beneficial for many surgeries.

How it Works

The da Vinci surgical system requires intense and lengthy training for surgeons, and involves hours of practice using a simulator. In da Vinci surgery, the surgeon sits at a console that controls the robot, which is positioned above the patient. Real time, magnified 3D views of the surgical area enhance the views surgeons can see. The robot itself is equipped with incredibly precise instruments that can rotate better than a human hand and wrist.

Current Robot-Assisted Surgeries at Marshall

Marshall is currently utilizing the da Vinci for many benign gynecological conditions as well as urological and general surgery needs, including a remarkable single-site gall bladder removal procedure. The surgeons currently using this technology at Marshall are:

The da Vinci robotic surgery team at Marshall have all been specially trained in providing a safe, minimally invasive experience.
