Bon Secours Mary Immaculate Hospital brings da Vinci® Robotic Surgical System to the Peninsula Center for Minimally Invasive Surgery

Friday, March 9, 2018

As a further demonstration of Bon Secours commitment to providing the highest level of patient care for complex surgical cases, Bon Secours Mary Immaculate Hospital has recently acquired the da Vinci® Si Robotic Surgical System.

Robotic surgical systems allow surgeons to replace many large-incision abdominal and pelvic surgeries with a minimally invasive approach.  The da Vinci offers surgeons dual-console capabilities to support collaboration during surgery. It also features enhanced high-definition 3D vision with up to 10x magnification and an immersive view of the operative field. Bon Secours will be using the da Vinci to perform a number of procedures including gynecological, colorectal, urologic, and general surgeries.

“I am excited to offer this surgical option for my patients,” said Christopher McCann, DO, gynecologic oncologist with Bon Secours Gynecologic Oncology Specialists. “Minimally invasive robotic surgery is increasingly being used for a wider range of surgical procedures. The benefits of minimally invasive surgery include less scarring, less blood loss, less risk of infection, fewer complications and faster recovery, compared to traditional surgery.”
