Surgical Technology

Robotic-assisted da Vinci® surgery is a state-of-the-art, highly precise, minimally invasive bariatric surgery option offered at Doctors Community Hospital – the first hospital in Prince George’s County to provide this service. The da Vinci system is 100 percent controlled by the surgeon’s hand movements, which are translated into precise movements of small-scale instruments inside the patient’s body. This allows for greater surgical precision, increased range of motion, improved dexterity, enhanced visualization and improved access. Patient benefits of the da Vinci system may include:

  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Decreased pain associated with surgery
  • Reduced risk of infection
  • Decreased blood loss
  • Minimized scarring
  • Faster recovery and return to normal daily activities.
