Denton Regional now offers the latest in minimally invasive heart surgery with the new robotic technology, the da Vinci Si Robotic Surgery System. Any type of heart surgery presents an intimidating prospect, however it can often offer the best solution to treat heart conditions. For many years, heart surgery has also presented multiple risks, long recovery times, and a large scar down the center of the chest.
With the advanced technology of the da Vinci System, surgeons can provide patients with an effective surgical option for complex cardiothoracic conditions. The da Vinci system is one of the least invasive options that allows the surgeon to use 3D-high definition vision and excellent control three small robotic arms. Using miniaturized instruments, your surgeon has the ability to translate their hand movements into precise maneuvers.
The potential benefits of cardiothoracic surgery using the da Vinci system includes:
- Less pain
- Smaller scars
- Decreased risk of infection
- Less blood loss (which decreases the risk for transfusions)
- Shorter hospital stay
- Quicker recovery
- Ability to resume normal activities sooner
The da Vinci system can be used to treat conditions such as coronary heart artery disease, mitral valve prolapse, and lung cancer. It has also been used to treat a variety of other conditions.
