In February 2012, Barton Memorial Hospital added to its surgical team with the da Vinci® Si Surgical System. Defined as robotic-assisted technology, the da Vinci has become widely known as being an effective alternative to both traditional "open" surgery and conventional minimally invasive laparoscopy.

There is a new category of minimally invasive surgery for which you may be a candidate. The da Vinci Surgical System is an effective alternative to both open surgery and laproscopy allowing surgeons to perform complex surgical procedures.

There are several patient benefits undergoing surgery with da Vinci including:

  • Less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Fewer complications
  • Faster recovery
  • Less scarring

Check out the conditions and surgical procedures on the left for more information on what the da Vinci can do!

Drs Gary Willen and Kobalter are currently certified to perform surgery using the da Vinci Surgical System. Dr. Carol Habaradas will be certified later this year.
