At The Valley Hospital, surgical procedures are performed using minimally invasive techniques whenever possible, giving patients reduced post-operative pain, a shorter recovery period and a reduced length of stay in the hospital.
Valley has pioneered the use of robotic surgery in gastrointestinal, liver, pancreatic, colorectal and prostate cancer. The extraordinary precision and control of the da Vinci Surgical System allows complex cancer procedures to be performed through few small incisions without compromising the principles of cancer surgery.
The patient recovers much sooner with less pain and better cosmesis and, at the same time, with less effect on the body’s immunity to fight cancer. Early recovery means early transition to the next stage of cancer treatment as opposed to open surgery that requires at least a month before the next phase of treatment can begin.
We are also one of the few programs in the area to offer robotic sacrocolpopexy for female patients with pelvic prolapse.
The da Vinci System enables surgeons to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions with unmatched precision.
For the patient, benefits may include:
significantly less pain,
reduced blood loss,
shorter recovery time,
a faster return to normal daily activities, and
in many cases better clinical outcomes.
