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:
Other benefits for patients can include:
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, 3D image of the surgical field.
The da Vinci Si Surgical System can be used for:
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 gynecologic surgery, with the added benefit of a single incision in the belly button leaving women with one, very small scar.
