UAP Clinic Surgeons Perform Robotic Surgeries in the Wabash Valley
A new age of surgery has come to the Wabash Valley! UAP Clinic surgeons have partnered with Union Hospital to provide an alternative to the traditional surgical approach for hysterectomies, sacrocolpopexy and prostatectomies by using the da Vinci Surgical System. Union Hospital and UAP Clinic are currently a few of only a handful of facilities across the country offering these minimally invasive, state-of-the-art procedures. The da Vinci S Surgical System integrates 3D HD laparoscopy and state-of-the-art robotic technology to virtually extend the surgeon's eyes and hands into the surgical field. The system is designed to enable new, minimally invasive options for complex surgical procedures. HD projection provides twice the effective viewing resolution and 20 percent more viewing area compared to da Vinci's standard 3D vision system. The unparalleled HD image improves clarity and detail of tissue and anatomy, which is crucial for complex dissection and reconstructive procedures.
