Our Lady of Lourdes Leads in Robotic Surgery
Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center is becoming the leader in southern New Jersey in robot-assisted surgery with the addition of a second unit to meet increased demand for this service. Lourdes surgeons use this minimally invasive technology for a variety of procedures, including prostate and gynecologic surgeries.
Lourdes recently purchased the latest in robot-assisted technology--the da Vinci® S HD™--and upgraded the existing unit to high-definition capabilities. These tools give Lourdes surgeons unparalleled precision and flexibility.
"We are able to see subtle anatomical nuances much better," said Gordon Brown, MD, who performs prostate surgery using the da Vinci.
The patient benefits of robot-assisted surgery include reduced pain, less chance of infection, shorter hospital stays and a faster return to normal activities.
