Using the da Vinci® Surgical System, our highly skilled surgeons perform a wide array of procedures that are less invasive than ever before. Ocala Regional Medical Center is one of a select number of hospitals in central Florida to offer surgery on the da Vinci SI model robot.
The da Vinci® Surgical System is powered by state-of-the-art robotic technology that helps your surgeon see vital anatomical structures more clearly and allows for unprecedented precision and control of surgical instruments through tiny incisions. With the robot, a surgeon can easily rotate the instrument 360 degrees, something no human hand can do. In addition, the da Vinci® robot keeps the surgical instruments steady, compensating for any hand movements on the part of the surgeon.
Robotic surgery typically offers numerous benefits over open surgery, including:
- Less scarring
- Less blood loss
- Less pain
- Shorter hospital stay
- Quicker recovery time
- Decreased risk of infection
- Fewer complications
At the present time, surgeons at Ocala Regional Medical Center are performing robotic surgery to treat urological and gynecological conditions as well as for select general surgery cases.
Robotic surgery is not appropriate for all patients. Speak to one of our surgeons to find out if you are a candidate.
