The da Vinci Xi Surgical System
The da Vinci Surgical System® is a sophisticated robotic platform designed to expand your surgeon’s capabilities and offer a minimally invasive option for major surgery. It is used to treat complex conditions ranging from cancer to uterine prolapse to nerve-sparing prostatectomies. The majority of women’s gynecological surgeries can be performed using da Vinci, as can most urological cases, many gastroenterology and general surgeries, and some procedures.
If your surgeon schedules inpatient surgery, this means you will be recovering in the hospital overnight or for several nights following your procedure. Prior to your inpatient surgery, our surgery admission nurse will call you to obtain your medical history and provide additional information to help you prepare.
Outpatient surgery, or same day surgery, does not require an overnight hospital stay. Whether an operation can be done as outpatient surgery depends on the potential for complications before and after surgery. Your doctor or surgeon will also take into account your age, medical history and overall health.
