Surgical Technology - da Vinci Surgical System
Crozer-Chester Medical Center offers the da Vinci Robotic Surgical System, an FDA-approved robot that is designed to provide surgeons with the potential to convert complex surgical procedures to minimally invasive surgeries. The da Vinci Robotic Surgical System incorporates the latest advances in robotics and computer technology to give surgeons exceptional control of instruments and clear three-dimensional views similar to those obtained in traditional open surgery. The da Vinci system features a tiny 3-D camera that’s used to help the surgeon see when performing intricate surgical procedures. The images are visible on a special console with magnified 3-D views. Precise, computer-enhanced controls allow the surgeon to manipulate the tiny surgical instruments in a natural, intuitive manner that mimics human hands. Crozer-Keystone surgeons are specially trained to use the system to treat prostate cancer, pelvic floor disorders, fibroid tumors and fallopian tube reanastamosis.

At Crozer-Chester Medical Center, we use the latest surgical technology, including:
Laparoscopic technology, which enables surgeons to directly examine abdominal organs without large incisions, allowing for outpatient or overnight stay procedures with far less postoperative recovery time and pain. Laparoscopic technology is used for various types of general, abdominal, and gynecologic surgeries.
Neuronavigation technology, which analyzes CT scan or MRI results to map out internal regions of the brain, allowing surgeons to localize brain tumors and perform biopsies without damaging surrounding healthy tissue.
Sentinel lymph node mapping, a surgical technique in which dyes and radioactive substances are used to identify the first lymph node to which cancer is likely to spread from a tumor. This procedure can reduce the number of lymph nodes that need to be removed in a biopsy.
Holmium laser technology, used for tissue cutting and coagulation to provide patients with virtually bloodless procedures. The laser is especially effective in treating urinary and gall bladder stones.
Cryoablation, or the controlled freezing of a particular organ or area of the body to destroy cancer cells. Crozer surgeons use this procedure to treat a range of tumors.
Digital fluoroscopy, or high-quality digital imaging technology used to study bodily organs as they work. It’s used by surgeons of many specialties, including vascular surgeons for aortic endograph procedures.
Anesthesiologists are key members of your surgical team. Crozer-Chester Medical Center anesthesiologists have years of experience with anesthetic agents and recognize that each patient has a unique set of medical requirements. The Anesthesiology Department works closely with the Surgical Department to optimize pain management regimens and ensure the best possible surgical experience for patients.
