Minimally invasive surgery at Beaumont is nothing short of amazing. Using high definition technology, surgeons at Beaumont now offer specialized robotic surgery in urology, gynecology, cardiology, general surgery and oncology. Real-time, 3-D imaging and micro-technology offers Beaumont surgeons more accurate visualization, meaning greater precision and improved clinical outcomes.

This system combines the knowledge and skills of the surgeon with precise manipulation of surgical instruments. Using Intuitive's da Vinci Surgical System, our surgeons operate while seated at a console, viewing a 3-D image of the surgical field. The surgeon's fingers grasp the master controls below the display while the system translates the surgeon's hand, wrist and finger movements into precise, real-time movements of surgical instruments inside the patient.

For our patients, the benefits of this new technology are clear: smaller incisions, less bleeding, less scarring, less risk of infection, less pain and faster recovery times.

The technology is also used for training residents, fellows and attending physicians in the Marcia and Eugene Applebaum Surgical Learning Center.
