da Vinci Surgery
Baptist Cancer Center uses da Vinci robotic surgery technology, alone or in combination with a variety of other therapies, as part of many patients' cancer care plans. The da Vinci system allows surgeons to perform major surgeries by making only small incisions.
Using the da Vinci Surgical System, the surgeon operates while seated comfortably at a console viewing a magnified 3-D image of the surgical field. The robot technology seamlessly translates the surgeon's hand, wrist and finger movements into precise, real-time movements of our surgical instruments inside the patient.
Baptist Memorial Hospital-Memphis became one of the first hospitals in the Mid-South to employ robotic surgery technology, and now da Vinci is widely used at Baptist Cancer Center. The da Vinci can be used for prostate, heart, gynecologic, urologic and other surgical procedures.
