daVinci Surgery

At Lafayette General, daVinci surgery is offered for urologic and gynecologic procedures—mainly prostatectomies and hysterectomies.

The daVinci® 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 daVinci System enables surgeons to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions with unmatched precision.

Physicians operate via a console that provides a 3-D view within the body, while the robotic arms translate the surgeon's every hand, wrist and finger movements to the tiny laparoscopic instruments.
