Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola now has the most up-to-date robotic technology with the recent addition of the da Vinci Si Surgical System.

Benefits for patients and Surgeons

Robotic surgery offers surgeons greater surgical precision, increased range of motion, an enhanced view and improved access to the surgical site, as compared to traditional procedures. Benefits experienced by patients may include less pain and blood loss, shorter hospital stays and faster recoveries.
 

  Our dedicated Robotics Surgery Team includes Registered Nurses, Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists and an Anesthesiologist, as well as Surgery and Anesthesia Technicians.

About da Vinci Robotic Surgery

Surgeons use the da Vinci robot while sitting nearby at control consoles. Small incisions are made to insert thin surgical instruments and a high-definition 3D camera. The surgeon views a highly magnified image of the surgical site, and the robot's technology translates the surgeon's hand movements into precise micro-movements of da Vinci's surgical instruments. The robotic surgical system cannot make any surgical maneuvers without the control of the surgeon. Robotic Surgery at Sacred Heart

Sacred Heart's surgical robot is currently being used to provide some general surgery procedures, urology and GYN procedures; such as prostatectomy and hysterectomy, as well as gynecologic oncology surgery.Sacred Heart's da Vinci is the only robotic surgical system in this area with the capability to do fluorescent dye tracking to help identify the location of kidney tumors.

Our dedicated robotic surgery team is focused on patient centered, safe, high-quality outcomes and operational excellence.
