Surgery—da Vinci Surgical System

Using high-tech tools for minimally invasive solutions


With our high-definition, 3-D da Vinci Si surgical system, our experienced surgeons can perform more complicated, minimally invasive laparoscopic procedures with:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Smaller scars
  • Shorter recovery time
  • Faster return to normal activities
  • Better clinical outcomes in many cases

Our da Vinci surgical system is used by several of our board-certified surgeons for hysterectomies (uterus removal) and fibroid removal, prostatectomies (prostate cancer removal), single-incision hysterectomies, gall bladder removal and kidney-sparing cancer removal.

The da Vinci surgical system offers:

  • High-definition, 3-D images.
  • Up to 10 times zoom.
  • Additional images such as ultrasound and EKG on separate monitors.
  • EndoWrist instrumentation for dexterity and range of motion far greater than the human hand.
  • A longer reach for use on larger patients.

Beaufort Memorial Hospital is the first hospital in the region to offer single-site surgery for gallbladder removal (cholecystectomy) and hysterectomy. This technique allows the surgeon to make a single incision through the navel with benefits including:

  • A smaller incision
  • Virtually no scar
  • Less pain
  • Faster recovery
