Robotic surgery has changed the face of surgery at Saint Mary’s Hospital. It is designed to challenge and supersede the boundaries of traditional surgery and introduced surgeons to a skill of revolutionary precision. Saint Mary’s patients can now experience a surgical solution that does what the human hand cannot, albeit guided by the human hand.
Our skilled surgeons operate the da Vinci® Si Surgical System, a robotic-assisted surgical tool, that encompasses a full range of high-tech features that include advanced dexterity and ergonomics, magnified 1080i HD resolution and exactitude performance. da Vinci Si has gained popularity in procedures for urologic surgery, gynecological surgery and general surgery.
Robotic technology enables patients the opportunity to undergo minimally invasive surgery with decreased complication risks, shortened hospital stay and reduced pain throughout recovery. Additionally patients who undergo robotic-assisted surgery benefit from:
- Minimal scarring
- Reduced blood loss and transfusions
- Lower risk of infection
- Swift return to routine activities
Saint Mary’s is pioneering the practice of robotic-assisted surgery in Connecticut to provide patients in the Greater Waterbury community a safer surgical alternative in a low cost, high quality hospital known for its feel-good spirit and familial environment.
