Da Vinci Si Robotic Surgery

Gilmore Memorial Regional Medical Center is proud to be the only hospital in Northeast Mississippi offering robot-assisted surgeries utilizing the da Vinci® Si™ Surgical System

Surgeons at Gilmore Memorial Regional Medical Center are using the recently installed da Vinci® Si™ Surgical System to perform a variety of surgical procedures for their patients.  Now patients will have access to the latest in robotic surgery in their own home town, eliminating the need to travel.  High quality results are just some of the many benefits of this type of surgery, which also includes less pain, a reduced risk of infection, a shorter hospital stay and a quicker recovery time for each patient.  This new robotically assisted surgical technology has a proven track record for safety and the surgeon is in control the entire time. 

Patient Benefits

The benefits to patients who need minimally-invasive surgery are numerous.  Use of the da Vinci® Si™ translates to less pain, a reduced risk of infection, smaller incisions, a shorter hospital stay and a quicker recovery.  This method of surgery decreases the patient’s length of stay at the hospital.  

Types of Procedures

At Gilmore, the da Vinci® Si™ will initially be utilized for Urologic and Gynecologic procedures with future plans to expand into general surgery as an alternate to traditional open surgery.  

How It Works

During robotic surgery, the surgeon is seated at a console a few feet away from the patient and views an actual image of the surgical site while operating in real-time, through tiny incisions, using electromechanically-enhanced instruments.  

Features include:
  • Visualization that is ten times more powerful than the human eye, including high definition images and 3-D capabilities.
  • Robotic arms can make finer movements than the human hand.
  • The system allows surgeons to operate three robotic arms with unmatched precision and steadiness. 

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a condition that may require surgery, you owe it to yourself to learn about all of your medical options, including the most effective, least invasive surgical treatments available.
