At St. Joseph Hospital, we play a leading role in shaping the next generation of surgery.

This dedication to medical excellence allows us to offer the latest advancements in robotic technology. With one of the nation's first hybrid operating rooms, multiple da Vinci® surgical systems and the expertise of our highly trained surgeons, St. Joseph Hospital is taking robotic surgery to the next level.

What is robotic surgery?

Robotic surgery, or robot-assisted surgery, allows doctors to perform many types of complex procedures with more precision, flexibility and control than is possible with conventional techniques. Because robotic surgery is usually performed through tiny incisions in the body, the advantages include significantly less pain, decreased risk of complications, shorter hospital stays and faster returns to normal daily activities.

The da Vinci robotic surgery system

At St. Joseph Hospital we make use of the da Vinci surgical system, a state-of-the-art surgical machine that’s revolutionized the way complex surgeries are performed. With the da Vinci Surgical System, surgeons operate through just a few small incisions, and use robotic arms to complete their procedures.

da Vinci system features

The da Vinci robot is made up of various arms attached to a base unit. The robot’s base is wired to a computer console, where every arm movement is controlled by a trained and experienced surgeon. The arms feature various tools, including:

  • Endoscopic cameras for viewing inside the body
  • Sharp, scissor-like instruments for cutting
  • Wristed instruments with a high range of motion
  • Sophisticated sewing tools that resemble tiny pliers
  • Laser tools and miniature scalpels

The System’s endoscopic cameras create a magnified 3-D high-definition vision system and its tiny wristed instruments can bend and rotate more than the human hand. As a result, da Vinci enables your surgeon to operate with enhanced vision, precision and control.
