Designed With the Surgeon & the Patient in Mind

The da Vinci Robotic System helps physicians, OR teams, and hospitals deliver the best care possible

Robot arms fanned outWhen it’s time for you or a loved one to have surgery, you want the most effective, least invasive surgical treatments available. Memorial Hospital of Sweetwater County offers just that with the da Vinci Robotic System.

MHSC’s surgeons who operate using robotic assistance have additional training and experience in using robotic technology to perform surgery, so you can expect the best possible outcome.

The hospital’s da Vinci system offer surgeons a high-definition 3D vision, a magnified view, and robotic and computer assistance. Surgeons use specialized instrumentation, including a miniaturized surgical camera and wristed instruments (i.e., scissors, scalpels and forceps) that are designed to help with precise dissection and reconstruction deep inside the body.
