da Vinci Robotic Surgery

A new approach to surgery

Surgeons at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center have an extra set of hands – a four-armed robot that assists them with complex surgeries through just a few tiny incisions.

It’s called the da Vinci® Surgical System, named after the great artist Leonardo da Vinci, who was known for his anatomical accuracy and three-dimensional details. The da Vinci Surgical System provides our surgeons with the ability to operate on patients with better control and access to hard-to-reach areas

How It Works

Traditional surgery may involve a large open incision and a longer recovery. With the da Vinci robot, your surgeon can make the smallest of incisions, opening the door for us to offer minimally invasive surgery for complex surgical procedures.

Surgery with da Vinci system does not place a robot at the controls. Your surgeon will use the system’s robotic hands in place of their own, controlling every aspect of the operation with the assistance of the robotic platform. The surgeon sits at the da Vinci® console, directing the tiny robotic-like instruments to make small incisions. At the same time, your surgeon can insert a tiny camera to see a three-dimensional image of the area on a high-definition monitor.

The potential benefits for you

At Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center, surgeons can use the robotic surgical system for gynecologic, prostate and colorectal procedures.

The benefits of robotic surgery may include:

  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Less blood loss
  • Less pain
  • Faster recovery
  • Smaller incisions for minimal scarring
