da Vinci® Robotic Surgery

The da Vinci® Surgical System is the latest, most innovative way to turn complex surgeries into minimally invasive procedures. Northern Dutchess Hospital, Vassar Brothers Medical Center and Putnam Hospital offer da Vinci® Robotic Surgery for general surgeries, particularly for urological, gynecological and gastrointestinal conditions. Known for its unparalleled precision, da Vinci® Robotic Surgery allows surgeons to make fewer and smaller incisions with more precision and greater control. For the patient, this can mean less blood loss, less need for transfusion and fewer complications.

Da Vinci® Robotic Surgery also frequently results in less pain and less scarring, thus speeding up your recovery time. This means your hospital stay is shorter and you can get home faster to resume the activities you love.

Because the da Vinci® Surgical System allows surgeons to enjoy unmatched dexterity, they have been able to apply the technology skillfully to many procedures. For example, da Vinci® Robotic Surgery is now the preferred procedure for removing the uterus in women with endometrial cancer and for removing the prostate in men following early diagnosis of prostate cancer.

Benefits to You

Because of its ability to make the smallest incisions, robotic surgery frequently results in less blood loss, less chance for infection, less scarring and quicker recovery time. That means you may be able to manage your pain better, spend less time in the hospital and get back to your favorite activities faster.
