As the first healthcare facility in Northwest Georgia to offer the latest in robotic surgery, our physicians and staff are more experienced to provide safe, efficient surgery allowing you to resume normal activities faster. Using the da Vinci S Surgical System, the surgeon operates while seated at a console viewing a 3D image of the surgical field. The surgeon's fingers grasp the master controls below the display, with hands and wrists naturally positioned. The system seamlessly translates the surgeon's hand, wrist and finger movements into precise, real-time movements of surgical instruments.
The da Vinci S Surgical System helps improve clinical outcomes and redefine standards of care. Patients may experience the following benefits:
- Reduced trauma to the body.
- Reduced blood loss and need for transfusions.
- Less post-operative pain and discomfort.
- Less risk of infection.
- Shorter hospital stay.
- Faster recovery and return to normal daily activities.
- Less scarring.
Many surgical procedures performed today using standard laparoscopic techniques may be performed more quickly and easily using the da Vinc S Surgical System. This is because da Vinci delivers increased clinical capability while maintaining the same "look and feel" of open surgery.
Cartersville Medical Center offers the da Vinci S to patients who need a prostatectomy, hysterectomy or general surgery procedures.
