If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a condition that may require surgery, you owe it to yourself to learn about the advanced surgical treatments available to you here at Mountain View Regional Medical Center.
Mountain View's robotic-assisted surgery program provides surgeons with an alternative to both traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy. The da Vinci technology enables surgeons to perform complex procedures through small incisions with great precision and achieve surgical outcomes equal to that of traditional open surgery.
For the patient, benefits may include:
- Shorter hospital stay
- Less pain after surgery
- Less scarring after surgery
- Lower risk of infection
- Less blood loss
- Quicker recovery
Before you decide on surgery, discuss treatment options with your doctor. Understanding the risks and benefits of each treatment can help you make the best decision for your individual situation.
da Vinci® Prostatectomy
Facing any kind of urologic surgery creates a great deal of anxiety for most men. Among your concerns is: “Will my body function normally following surgery?” Traditional open urologic surgery – in which large incisions are made to access the pelvic organs – has been the standard approach when surgery is warranted. Yet common drawbacks of this procedure include significant post-surgical pain, a lengthy recovery and an unpredictable, potentially long-term impact on continence and sexual function.
da Vinci Surgery, a minimally invasive approach that utilizes the latest in surgical and robotics technologies, is ideal for delicate urologic surgery. This includes prostatectomy, in which the target site is not only tightly confined but also surrounded by nerves affecting urinary control and sexual function.

da Vinci® Hysterectomy
Traditional open gynecologic surgery, using a large incision for access to the uterus and surrounding anatomy, has for many years been the standard approach to many gynecologic procedures. Yet with open surgery can come significant pain, trauma, a long recovery process and threat to surrounding organs and nerves.
For complex hysterectomies and other gynecologic procedures, robot-assisted surgery with the da Vinci® Surgical System may be the most effective, least invasive treatment option. Through tiny, 1-2 cm incisions, surgeons using the da Vinci system can operate with greater precision and control, minimizing the pain and risk associated with large incisions while increasing the likelihood of a fast recovery and excellent clinical outcomes.
