The Art Of Surgery Is Twice What It Used To Be At Huntington Memorial Hospital

Philanthropic Support Secures 2nd Robotic Surgery System

PASADENA, Calif., Oct. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As part of its continued commitment to the patient experience and with the support of community donors, Huntington Memorial Hospital has added a second da Vinci Surgical System to its operating room that further enhances the benefits of robotic surgery by using a single incision. This "Single-Site" technology allows for a single incision in the belly button and potential benefits include minimal scarring, less pain, low blood loss, fast recovery, a short hospital stay and high patient satisfaction. Use of Huntington Hospital's first da Vinci Surgical System has been so great since its debut that a second system was needed to meet the growing demand from patients and physicians. 

"Single-Site instruments used with the da Vinci Surgical System are the next step in the evolution of surgical technologies," says Dr. Armen H. Dikranian, Urologist and the Medical Director of the Robotic Surgery Program. "We are truly excited to continue Huntington Hospital's leadership in providing patients with the most minimally invasive surgical options."

The Food and Drug Administration cleared the specialized Single-Site instruments for use with the da Vinci Surgical System in December 2011. The da Vinci's advancements take surgery beyond the limits of the human hand and takes minimally invasive surgery to the broadest possible base of patients. It can be used for multiple procedures, such as prostatectomy, hysterectomy, myomectomy, coronary artery bypass, mitral valve repair and colorectal surgery.

Named after the artist who invented the first robot and similarly used unparalleled anatomical accuracy and three-dimensional details to bring his works to life, the da Vinci serves as the brush to the surgeon's precise strokes to give the patient the best outcomes possible.

The San Gabriel Valley community's needs along with the new single port technology made this new robot an obvious choice for our philanthropic efforts.
