Who is a Candidate for da Vinci® Surgery?
Most people are candidates for da Vinci® Surgery, but it may not be right for everyone. Only you and your doctor can decide whether this surgery is right for you. Scheduling a consultation with one of our surgeons is the first step in knowing all of the options that are available to you.
The da Vinci® Surgical System is a minimally invasive alternative to both open surgery and laparoscopy allowing surgeons to perform complex surgical procedures. Surgical patients experience less pain, decreased risk of infection, less blood loss, less scarring, shorter hospital stay, shorter recovery time and faster return to normal daily activities. Our team of caregivers and highly trained physicians are here to guide you though your procedure and comfort you the entire journey of your care with us.
To determine if you are a candidate for da Vinci® Surgery, we have put together a brief survey you can take with you to your doctor's appointment. It will ask you questions that should be reviewed between you and our surgeon.
