da Vinci Robotic Surgery

Meet the Newest Member of Our Surgical Team

Capital Region Medical Center is proud to be the first and only hospital in Jefferson City to offer robotic surgery.

The da Vinci Xi Surgical System is the most advanced surgical system to date. It can be used across a spectrum of minimally invasive surgical procedures and has been optimized for multi-quadrant surgery in the areas of:

  • Gynecology,
  • Urology,
  • Thoracic,
  • Cardiac and
  • General surgery.

The da Vinci Xi Surgical System has a 3D high definition (3D-HD) vision system, special instruments and computer software that allow the surgeon to operate with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control. The 3D-HD image is highly magnified, so the surgeon has a close-up view of the area he or she is operating on. The da Vinci instruments have mechanical wrists that bend and rotate to mimic the movements of the human wrist – allowing the surgeon to make small, precise movements inside the body.

Benefits of da Vinci Surgery

da Vinci Surgery is a less invasive technique than what is referred to as “open” surgery. With da Vinci surgery, the incisions made in the body by the surgeon are much smaller than the cuts made during the open surgery. Da Vinci Surgery is therefore considered “minimally invasive surgery.” Studies of da Vinci surgery have shown the following benefits in comparison to open surgery:

  • A shorter hospital stay.
  • Less blood clots.
  • Fewer complications.
  • Less need for narcotic pain medicine.
  • Less recovery time.
  • Minimal scarring due to smaller incisions.
