Robotic-Assisted Surgery

Heal faster and reduce the length of your hospital stay when you receive robotic-assisted surgery instead of open surgery at Nash UNC Health Care. Ask your surgeon if you’d benefit from the only da Vinci® Surgical System in Rocky Mount, North Carolina.

da Vinci Surgical System

The da Vinci Surgical System is a robotic-assisted tool that helps a doctor perform surgery more accurately through a few small incisions (cuts in the skin). Your surgeon controls the arm while seated at a computer console near the operating table. Using this technology, your care team can see a magnified 3D view of your surgical site during surgery.

Advantages of da Vinci Surgical System

Benefit from robotic surgery and its advantages compared to traditional surgery. They include:

  • Faster recovery time
  • Lower risk of infection or complications
  • Minimal scarring
  • Reduced pain and discomfort
  • Reduced blood loss and transfusions
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Smaller incisions

Services Performed With Robotic Surgery

Your surgeon may use robotic-assisted surgery methods to perform procedures such as:

Hysterectomy & Prostatectomy

For removal of the uterus (hysterectomy) or prostate (prostatectomy), da Vinci surgery allows doctors to more accurately operate on your affected area. Both gynecologists and urologists at Nash UNC use this technology to see your organs better and to avoid damaging healthy tissue.
