Harrison welcomes new da Vinci® surgical robot - 7/7/2008

Harrison Medical Center has advanced its surgical services with the da Vinci® Surgical System. This new state-of-the-art, robotic-assisted surgery tool is only one of 650 in the nation and 850 in the world.

The $1.7 million robot is a minimally invasive surgery option that allows for greater precision and greater range of motion with improved access to the surgical site. The robot doesn’t actually perform the surgery, but merely carries out the commands of the surgeon and replicates the movement of the surgeon’s hands with the tips of micro-instruments.

With the addition of the da Vinci® Surgical System, Harrison enhances its surgery services, processes, and technical excellence. The robot initially will be used for urological, gynecological (including hysterectomies), and general surgery services.

Patients receive the full benefit of this progressive surgery option—less pain, less blood loss, less risk of infection, shorter hospital stays, and faster recovery times. This is yet another way Harrison is committed to making a positive difference in people’s lives through exceptional medical care.
