da Vinci Robotic Surgical System
Our physicians are fully trained in using the da Vinci Surgical System at St Lukes Regional Medical Center or Mercy Medical Center. da Vinci is a less invasive option now available here in Sioux City. Some gynecology procedures enable surgeons to access the target anatomy using a vaginal approach, which may not require an external incision. But for complex procedures, robot-assisted surgery with the da Vinci Surgical System may be the most effective, least invasive treatment option. Through tiny, 1-2 cm incisions, our physicians can operate with greater precision and control, minimizing the pain and risk associated with large incisions while increasing the likelihood of a fast recovery and excellent clinical outcome.
