da Vinci® Si HD Surgical System
Robotics is transforming healthcare, offering patients more effective minimally
invasive surgery options that result in less trauma on the body and faster
Centinela Hospital is proud to offer patients robotic-assisted surgeries
through the acquisition the facility’s da Vinci Si HD Surgical System.
The da Vinci Si HD Surgical System was designed with the goal of further
advancing the technology used in minimally invasive surgery. Now, via
the service of physicians specifically trained and certified on the da
Vinci Si HD Surgical System, patients may opt for minimally invasive,
robotic surgical procedures in the areas of
Gynecology, Urology, Thoracic, Cardiac and General Surgery.
How it works
The da Vinci technology enables your surgeon to operate with enhanced vision,
precision and control. During minimally invasive surgery, surgeons operate
through a few small incisions using long instruments and a tiny camera
to guide doctors during surgery. By enabling efficient access throughout
the abdomen or chest, the da Vinci Si HD Surgical System features special
surgical instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human hand.
The surgeon sits at a console and performs the procedure using a magnified
vision system that gives your surgeon a 3D HD view inside your body.
Robotic-assisted surgery via the da Vinci Si HD Surgical System offers
the following potential benefits compared to other methods:
- Shorter hospital stay
- Less pain
- Less blood loss
- Fewer complications
- Smaller incision for less scaring
- Faster return to daily activities
The da Vinci Si HD System is a robotically-assisted surgical device where
your surgeon is
100% in control of the procedure at all time.
Important Information for Patients
Serious complications may occur in any surgery, including da Vinci Surgery,
up to and including death. Risks include, but are not limited to, injury
to tissues and organs and conversion to other surgical techniques. If
you doctor needs to convert the surgery to another surgical technique,
this could result in longer operative time, additional or larger incisions
and/or increased complications.
Individual surgical results may vary. Patients who are not candidates for
non-robotic minimally invasive surgery are also not candidate for da Vinci
Surgery. Patients should talk to their doctor to decide if da Vinci Surgery
is right for them. Patients and doctors should review all available information
on non-surgical and surgical options in order to make an informed decision.
