Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center is offering state-of-the-art robotic surgery with the use of the da Vinci Surgical System by Intuitive Surgical.
During robotic surgery, surgeons operate four robotic arms via the console, which allows them to use miniature EndoWrist surgical instruments in the 1-centimeter incisions made in the patient. The da Vinci control console allows the surgeon to see the surgical field in enhanced detail as a result of the three-dimensional (3-D) images transmitted from the laparoscopic cameras. The surgeon manipulates the robotic "hands" in real-time using master controls. The instruments are designed with seven degrees of motion that mimic and in some instances expand upon the dexterity of the human wrist. Because small incisions are used instead of more traditional, larger incisions, patients can experience a faster recovery time from surgery, as well as a lowered risk of infection or other complications and the possibility of better outcomes.
Da Vinci Robotic surgery
is currently available for prostatectomies, hysterectomies and cardiac surgeries
, and will be available for other general surgeries in the near future.
We routinely see patients from the surrounding areas of Claremont, Chino Hills, La Verne, Ontario, Rancho Cucamonga, Diamond Bar, San Dimas, Chino, Eastvale and we are always willing to help those in need. When your surgery is complete, our volunteer staff will update your family. Afterwards, the staff in our post-operative units will meet your needs while efficiently preparing you for a safe discharge home. Every step of the way, our highly trained and supportive staff members are there with you so that your surgical experience will be pleasant and positive.
