Surgical Robot To be Discussed At Local Senior Center

The new da Vinci SI surgical system will be explained by Karen Werskey, BSN RN daVinci Surgical Robotics Coordinator, on Monday, Mar. 5, at 10:30 a.m. at the Crothersville Senior Citizens Center.
This amazing technology provides surgeons with greater precision, greater control, and greater access to hard-to-reach areas, allowing extremely complex operations to be performed through just a few small incisions. Now, minimally invasive techniques can be used for procedures whose complexity once demanded open surgery.
The da Vinci(r) Si(tm) HD Surgical System consists of three main parts: the surgeon console, which includes a video screen, hand controls, and foot pedals; the vision tower; and the bedside cart which is equipped with four robotic arms. One arm holds a 3D HD endoscope, and the other three arms control miniaturized wristed instruments.
The public is invited to attend to learn more about the new surgical technology.
