da Vinci® Changing the Experience of Surgery at Bassett

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a condition that may require surgery, you owe it to yourself to learn about all of your medical options, including the most effective, least invasive surgical treatments available.

The da Vinci System enables surgeons to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions with unmatched precision. The da Vinci system is used to perform:

  • Hysterectomies
  • Partial Nephrectomies
  • Prostatectomies
  • Rectal cancer and rectal prolapse

For the patient, benefits may include:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Less scarring
  • Shorter recovery time
  • A faster return to normal daily activities
  • And in many cases, better clinical outcomes

While clinical studies support the effectiveness of the da Vinci® Surgical System when used in minimally invasive surgery, individual results may vary. Surgery with the da Vinci System may not be appropriate for every individual. Always ask your doctor about all treatment options, as well as their risks and benefits.
