Robotic Surgery at Central Peninsula Hospital
Central Peninsula Hospital is proud to provide patients with the latest technology advances in surgical equipment. In February of 2019, Central Peninsula Hospital surgeons began using the da Vinci Xi Surgical System to perform multiple surgical procedures. Robotic surgery is the most advanced minimally invasive surgery option available today. Central Peninsula Hospital has four surgeons trained in robotic surgery and they are ready to discuss robotic surgery options with you.
Patient Benefits from Robotic Surgery
Robotic surgery offers patients many benefits compared to open surgery and even laparoscopic surgery, including:
- Minimal scarring
- Faster recovery time and return to normal activities
- Smaller incisions and reduced risk of infection
- Greater precision and accuracy
- Greater precision
- Enhanced dexterity
- Superior visualization
Is the da Vinci system safe?
Patient safety is our number one priority at Central Peninsula Hospital. Using the da Vinci Xi surgical system allows surgeons to perform extremely complicated surgical tasks through very small incisions compared to open surgery (traditional surgery with incisions). The robot is a self powered computer controlled device that provides numerous safety features including:
- Over one million safety self-checks per second
- Audio and visual alerts that ensure the operating room team and the surgeon are kept constantly aware of the system status and functions
- The system has a wide screen (touch screen) for improved view of patient anatomy and instruments
- Guided instrument exchange to ensure safe exchange during surgery
