TriStar Greenview Regional Hospital provides the most up-to-date da Vinci® Si Surgical System robotic surgery technology in Southern Kentucky. TriStar Greenview surgeons are now able to offer a minimally invasive option for complex surgical procedures in the areas of urology, gynecology, colorectal and general surgery. The da Vinci Si Surgical System helps improve clinical outcomes and redefine standards of care. Patients may experience benefits that include less scarring, a shorter hospital stay, and reduced post-operative pain and discomfort.
Using the da Vinci® Si Surgical System, the surgeon operates while seated at a console viewing a 3D image of the surgical field. The surgeon's fingers grasp the master controls below the display, with hands and wrists naturally positioned. The system seamlessly translates the surgeon's hand, wrist and finger movements into precise, real-time movements of surgical instruments.
The da Vinci® Si Surgical System helps improve clinical outcomes and redefine standards of care. Patients may experience the following benefits:
- Reduced trauma to the body
- Reduced blood loss and need for transfusions
- Less post-operative pain and discomfort
- Less risk of infection
- Shorter hospital stay
- Faster recovery and return to normal daily activities
- Less scarring
Many surgical procedures performed today using standard laparoscopic techniques may be performed more quickly and easily using the da Vinci® Si Surgical System. This is because da Vinci delivers increased clinical capability while maintaining the same "look and feel" of open surgery.
TriStar Greenview offers the da Vinci Si to patients who need a prostatectomy, hysterectomy or general surgery procedures.
