With the tiniest of incisions, specially trained Mercy San Juan surgeons are using the state-of-the-art da Vinci® Surgical System to perform complicated surgical procedures with a degree of precision, control and dexterity traditional surgeries simply can't match. Scarring is drastically reduced. Recovery time is measured in days instead of weeks. And pain and the potential for complications are minimized.
Because the benefits to our patients are so extraordinary, we're continually expanding our robotic surgery program with new procedures and more specialists, so more patients can receive minimally invasive treatment rather than complex open surgery. A now we've added a second da Vinci system at Mercy San Juan.
Mercy San Juan introduced the latest da Vinci® Si™ Surgical System to its operating room in September 2012, enabling our busy existing robotic surgery program to expand to meet growing community needs and provide the latest advancements in minimally invasive surgery. The new daVinci Si system includes single-port capability, meaning an even less invasive procedure for patients.
In addition, patients recover from surgery in Mercy San Juan's new patient tower, with private rooms, a soothing healing environment and state-of-the-art technology.
