Years ago, Parkview recognized the benefits of marrying man with machine in the operating room. Since that time, the robotics program has grown to include more than 30 local physicians, from gynecology, urology, cardiothoracic, and colorectal specialties.
By utilizing the da Vinci® Xi Surgical System and the TruSystem™ 7000 operating table, our physicians can command the bionic team member via wristed instruments to execute precise motions and life-saving techniques. Nothing escapes their attention with a magnified vision system and 3D HD view. Patients stand to benefit with a less invasive experience, reduced pain and earlier mobilization.
But reading about it is one thing. Seeing it in action is another. To demonstrate the exactness of this technology in a manner we can all appreciate, Donald Urban, MD, Parkview Physicians Group – Urology, picked up the controls and made a work of art we can all admire.
