Robotic Assisted Surgery

Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC offers patients the next generation of surgical techniques with the use of robotic assisted surgery. This minimally invasive surgery can result in:

  • Quicker recovery time
  • Less scarring
  • Minimal blood loss

The da Vinci® Surgical System

Magee is the first hospital in Pennsylvania to utilize a dual-console da Vinci® Surgical System for robotic assisted surgery.

The da Vinci® Si dual console HD Surgical System — a sophisticated robotic platform — expands the surgeon’s capabilities, enabling increased dexterity and sharpened precision for improved surgical performance.

Surgeons can perform minimally invasive surgeries and complex procedures:

  • Through smaller incisions compared to traditional laparoscopic techniques
  • On patients who were traditionally not cleared for laparoscopic surgeries
  • On patients who may have had weight problems, secondary health issues, or weren’t able to benefit from minimally invasive surgeries because of previous abdominal surgeries

Other benefits for patients can include:

  • Quicker recovery times
  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Decreased pain at the time of surgery
  • Minimal loss of blood during surgeries

How The da Vinci® Si Surgical System Works

Instrumentation, called EndoWrist®, seamlessly translates the surgeon’s wrist and finger movements into precise, real-time movements of surgical instruments.

The surgeon uses this technology, while seated near the patient, at an ergonomically designed console.

With a high-powered camera, the surgeon maneuvers the arms of the robot while viewing a magnified, high-resolution, 3-D image of the surgical field.

Hysterectomy

Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC is the first hospital in Western Pennsylvania to perform a hysterectomy using single site robotic technology. This surgical option provides women with a state-of-the-art, minimally invasive approach to gynecological surgery, with the added benefit of a single incision in the belly button leaving women with one, very small scar.
