New da Vinci Surgical System

We are pleased to announce that a second da Vinci surgical system has been installed at Norton Hospital, bringing the total number of da Vinci surgical systems available in the Norton Healthcare system to three. The newest da Vinci is a third-generation Si HD system. It offers unequaled 3-D high-definition visualization and other features, such as:

  • 20 percent more viewing area for improved clarity and detail of tissue planes and anatomy
  • EndoWrist instruments that use state-of-the-art robotic technology to function like a human wrist and seamlessly translate the surgeon’s hand movements with unparalleled precision
  • Ergonomically designed surgeon’s console
  • Patient-side cart with four interactive robotic arms

The da Vinci Si HD also is available at Norton Suburban Hospital. It is ideal for radical prostatectomies, hysterectomies, myomectomies and partial nephrectomies.
 
da Vinci surgery offers many patient benefits, including:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Smaller incisions resulting in minimal scarring
  • Less blood loss and need for transfusion
  • Lower risk for infection
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Quicker recovery and return to normal activities
Norton Healthcare was the first health care provider in Louisville to offer da Vinci technology – in 2004 at Norton Hospital – as well as the first to install the Si HD system – at Norton Suburban Hospital in August 2009.
