da Vinci Surgical System

da Vinci Surgical System

Robotic Surgery

Mount Nittany Health uses the da Vinci® Surgical System to provide surgeons with an alternative to traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy. Da Vinci puts a surgeon’s hands at the controls of a state-of-the-art robotic platform. Surgeons can perform complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions, with unmatched precision.

For the patient, benefits may include:

  • Faster return to normal daily activities
  • In many cases, better clinical outcomes
  • Less blood loss
  • Less scarring
  • Shorter recovery time
  • Significantly less pain

Gynecologic surgery

For women facing gynecologic surgery, the period of pain, discomfort, and extended time away from normal daily activities that usually follows can cause significant anxiety. Fortunately, less-invasive options are available. For hysterectomies and other gynecologic procedures, robot-assisted surgery with the da Vinci® Surgical System may be the most-effective, least-invasive treatment option.

Urologic surgery

Introduced with the development of the da Vinci® Surgical System, an increasing number of surgeons worldwide perform prostatectomy and other urologic procedures. This minimally invasive approach is ideal for delicate urologic surgery. This includes prostatectomy, where the target site is tightly confined and surrounded by nerves affecting urinary control and sexual function. Using da Vinci, your surgeon has a better tool to spare surrounding nerves, which may enhance your recovery and clinical outcomes.
