Robotic Surgery at Mercy Health Partners
da Vinci® Surgical System
Mercy Health Partners has the privilege to be one of the first hospitals in Michigan to use the da Vinci robot-assisted surgical technology. We have been successfully using this technology since 2006 at our Hackley Campus. This minimally-invasive surgical breakthrough is setting new options for hysterectomy and myomectomy procedures, as well as for the treatment of prostate cancer.
The da Vinci Surgical System is powered by state-of-the-art robotic technology. It allows your surgeon's hand movements to be scaled, filtered, and translated into precise movements of micro-instruments within the operative site. The magnified, three-dimensional view the surgeon experiences enables him to perform precise surgery in complex procedures through very small surgical incisions. While the da Vinci system is "robotic," it cannot be programmed, nor can it make decisions on its own. The System requires every surgical maneuver be performed with direct input from your surgeon.
This section of our website has been created to provide patients and their families with an easily accessible overview of effective treatment options and the new da Vinci approach to surgery.
The da Vinci System enhances surgical capabilities by enabling the performance of complex surgeries through tiny surgical openings. The System cannot be programmed nor can it make decisions on its own. It requires that every surgical maneuver be performed with direct input from your surgeon.
