Robotic Surgery Center
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.
Our wide range of robotic surgery services includes
- Cardiovascular surgery
- General Surgery
