UMass Memorial offers the most advanced minimally invasive robotic technology for the surgical treatment of urologic disorders such as prostate and gynecologic cancers, as well as other nonurologic conditions. The daVinci S robotic surgical system from Intuitive Surgical® is the latest model of its patented robotic technology designed to enhance the way surgeons operate.
The daVinci S surgical system provides a clearer view of the surgical site, and the robotic controls provide the surgeon with greater dexterity and precision during surgical procedures than using his/her hands alone.
At UMass Memorial, the daVinci S Robotic Surgery System is currently used for prostate and gynecologic cancer surgeries, as well as for select cases of pelvic organ prolapse and fibroids.
If you require surgery to treat your urologic condition, you may be a candidate for this new, minimally invasive surgical procedure. For many patients, robotic surgery may provide the following benefits:
- Faster recovery
- Less invasive procedure
- Less postoperative pain
- Lower complication rates
- Improved outcomes
- Reduced blood loss
- Smaller incisions
- Shorter hospital stay
