da Vinci Robotic Surgery
Surgical patients at Aspirus are experiencing firsthand the difference technology and some of the best surgeons in the region can make.
Our highly skilled surgeons use da Vinci robotic technology to perform a number of surgical procedures, offering patients better outcomes.
Procedures using the state-of-the-art da Vinci robot are minimally invasive, and when compared to traditional surgeries, patients experience:
The da Vinci robot has four "arms" equipped with high-powered cameras and the proper surgical instruments, allowing surgeons to operate with unmatched precision and control.
Da Vinci allows surgeons to perform procedures with just a few small incisions, rather than making one large incision. The technology also offers patients surgical options that previously were not possible for certain conditions.
Currently, Aspirus uses da Vinci robotic technology to perform the following procedures:
A hysterectomy is the surgical removal of a woman’s uterus, and aside from cesarean section deliveries, it is the most common surgical procedure performed on women. The procedure is used to treat cancer, fibroids, uncontrolled bleeding, chronic pain and other disabling conditions.

A myomectomy is the surgical removal of uterine fibroids, which are non-cancerous growths on a woman’s uterus. It is estimated that 20 to 40 percent of women between the ages of 35 and 55 experience symptoms from fibroids that can be very uncomfortable.
A prostatectomy is the surgical removal of the cancerous prostate gland and related structures. Da Vinci prostatectomy is a preferred choice for treating localized prostate cancer.

Sacral colpopexy is a surgical procedure designed to correct pelvic organ prolapse, which is the protrusion of the pelvic organs into, or out of the vaginal canal. Most cases of pelvic organ prolapse occur when support tissues are damaged due to childbirth or chronic abdominal pressure.
