You will be able to learn about the capabilities of the da Vinci Surgical System and BMHs robotic-assisted surgery program. An exciting hands-on, interactive experience with the “robot” will be available with live demonstrations. There will be door prizes and refreshments will be served.

What is robotic-assisted surgery?

Robotic-assisted surgery uses a platform called the da Vinci Surgical System, offering advanced technologies to assist surgeons with operations. The da Vinci system does not move on its own; rather, its surgical instruments are remotely controlled by a specially trained surgeon.

“With our diverse group of specially trained general, gynecology and urology surgeons at the controls,” says Dave Lowry, assistant administrator at BMH, “the da Vinci Surgical System allows for even greater precision, small incisions, shorter hospital stays, better clinical outcomes, and faster return to everyday activities.”

Is robotic-assisted surgery right for you?

If you have been diagnosed with a condition requiring surgery, you may be a candidate for this technology. If you think you may be a candidate for a robotic-assisted procedure performed with the da Vinci Surgical System, ask your doctor during your next visit.

“We are truly thrilled to be leaders in the healthcare industry and are pleased to be bringing more advanced minimally invasive surgical options to eastern Idaho,” says Jeff Daniels, CEO of BMH. “We are committed to excellence and progress, and investing in such a dynamic piece of technology is just one example of how we strive to provide the highest quality of healthcare to our patients, helping to improve lives.”
