The da Vinci Surgical System at OhioHealth

What is the da Vinci Surgical System?

The da Vinci Surgical System at OhioHealth Dublin Methodist Hospital enables Dr. Abaza to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through tiny incisions with unmatched vision, precision, dexterity and control. The high-definition vision and miniaturized, wristed surgical instruments are designed to help specially trained physicians take surgery beyond the limits of the human hand. Though it is often called a "robot," da Vinci cannot act on its own - surgery is performed entirely by Dr. Abaza from start to finish. By overcoming the limitations of traditional open and laparoscopic surgery, in the hands of highly skilled surgeons like Dr. Abaza, da Vinci is changing the experience of surgery for people around the world.

The Benefits of Robotic-Assisted Surgery

Surgery with the da Vinci is considered “Minimally Invasive Robotic-Assisted Surgery”. This highly advanced surgical tool enables Dr. Abaza to make a few tiny incisions instead of a large incision needed for traditional open surgery. Benefits may include:
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Less blood loss
  • Less need for blood tranfusion
  • Lower risk of complications
  • Lower risk of wound infection
  • Less pain
  • Faster recovery and return to normal activities
