General Robotic Surgery
The da Vinci surgical robot allows your surgeon a three-dimensional, high definition view with 10x magnification. Your surgeon will be able to see details within a fraction of a millimeter. Various general surgery procedures can be completed by ProMedica surgeons using the da Vinci® surgical robot.
Vascular Robotic Surgery
Surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome is one area in which the small, precise instruments of the da Vinci Surgical System excel. Using the micro-instruments of the da Vinci robotic system, your surgeon can safely and precisely remove the compressive and cervical bands of the scalene muscle in order to relieve pressure and alleviate discomfort and numbness.
Urologic Robotic Surgery
At ProMedica Toledo Hospital and ProMedica St. Luke’s Hospital, we are equipped with a state-of-the-art robotic surgery systen that allows our surgeons to perform your prostatectomy safely – and with great precision.
Gynecological Robotic Surgery
Gone are the days of open surgery which often come with wide incisions, pain, long recovery (usually six weeks), heavy pain medication, risk of infection, and significant blood loss. Hysterectomies performed with the da Vinci Surgical System offer many benefits to women over other types of hysterectomies.
