da Vinci Si Surgical System da Vinci Si Surgical System

Pinpoint accuracy during complex procedures allows for a minimally invasive experience with robotic surgery. This means less pain, shorter hospital stays and a quicker recovery compared to traditional laparoscopic surgery. It’s a surgical experience that is the least disruptive to your everyday life. And no one knows this better than the surgeons at St. Joseph’s/Candler who have performed more da Vinci procedures than anyone else in the region.

• Urogynecology and gynecologic
• General surgery

The surgeons and staff at St. Joseph’s/Candler have performed hundreds of robotic procedures making us the most experienced robotic hospital in the Savannah area. The da Vinci Surgical System makes it possible for surgeons to perform complex procedures using minimally invasive techniques, resulting in numerous potential patient benefits.

Superior design:
The da Vinci robotic surgical system uses sophisticated computer aided equipment, which allows the surgeon to benefit from the magnified views while retaining the three dimensional view of traditional open surgery, all in high definition. This enhanced view allows the surgeon to see structures and problem tissues that might otherwise be overlooked.

How does it work:
The surgeon sits at a console where their hands are placed into glove like controllers, called masters, which are used to manipulate the robotic surgical EndoWrist instruments. Then the (on board) computer replicates the surgeons movements precisely and to scale. This allows the surgeon to move in a more natural fashion as opposed to straight stick laparoscopy where the surgeon has to move the instrument left to right, thus reducing the chance of human error.
