da Vinci® ... Changing the Experience of Surgery at Midwest Regional Medical Center

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a condition that may require surgery, you owe it to yourself to learn about all of your medical options, including the most effective, least invasive surgical treatments available.

The da Vinci® Surgical System provides surgeons with an alternative to both traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy, putting a surgeon's hands at the controls of a state-of-the-art robotic platform. The da Vinci® System enables surgeons to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions with unmatched precision.

For the patient, benefits may include:

Smaller incisions – provide faster healing and little to no scarring
Shortened hospital stay, or even outpatient surgery
Minimal blood loss – less chance a blood transfusion will be needed during surgery
Less post-surgical pain – minimizes the length of time or need for pain medication
Faster healing time – you will be back to your normal routine faster

MAKOplasty®

MAKOplasty® partial knee replacement offers new treatment options for those living with painful early to mid-stage osteoarthritis of the knee, affecting only one or two components of the knee, and who prefer a less invasive surgery and more rapid recovery than total knee arthroplasty.

The entire procedure only requires a four to six inch incision over the knee. Tactile, intelligent robotic arm technology and three-dimensional visualization of the knee guides the surgeon in controlled resurfacing of the pre-defined area, saving as much of the patient’s healthy bone and surrounding tissue as possible.

Using CT scan data, the surgeon follows a three dimensional computer model of the patient’s pre-surgical plan. During the procedure, real-time visual, tactile and auditory feedback facilitates ideal implant positioning and placement.

It is this level of planning and surgical accuracy in treating earlier stage knee osteoarthritis that can result in a more natural feeling knee and motion.

In many cases, patients are permitted to walk soon after surgery, drive a car within two weeks and return to normal daily activities shortly thereafter.

da Vinci® Surgical System

The da Vinci® Surgical System provides your surgeon with tremendous surgical accuracy utilizing high-definition 3D vision and a magnified operating view. Your doctor controls the da Vinci® System, which translates his or her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside your body. Though it is often called a “robot,” da Vinci® cannot act on its own: The surgery is performed entirely by your doctor.

Together, da Vinci® technology allows your doctor to perform complex procedures through just a few tiny openings. As a result patients are often able to get back to their daily routines faster — without the usual recovery for traditional surgeries.

To date, the da Vinci® System has been used successfully worldwide in hundreds of thousands of procedures.

Robotic Surgery Center

Midwest Regional Medical Center was the first hospital in the Oklahoma City metro area to install a da Vinci Robotic Surgical System. Midwest Regional is Oklahoma’s leader in robotic surgery with the most experienced robotic surgeons in the state. When our surgeons use robotics, you have less scarring, less pain, and a faster recovery. And with robotic surgery for prostate cancer, there’s also less chance of incontinence or impotence.
