Frequently Asked Questions

At Baxter Regional Medical Center, we have set out to change the experience of surgery by investing in the most advanced technology for minimally invasive surgery, the da Vinci® Surgical System.

The da Vinci System can be used for a range of minimally invasive surgical procedures and enables highly magnified visualization inside the body and greater precision while making it easier for surgeons to operate using small incisions. This innovation results in many potential patient benefits, including less risk of infection, blood loss, significantly less pain, shorter hospital stays and faster recovery times.

da Vinci Surgical System

Is it Right for You?

Minimally invasive procedures require only a few small incisions, meaning patients can heal faster and reduce their risk of catching an infection. The da Vinci surgical system allows doctors to perform an even greater number of complex procedures in a minimally invasive manner, making it highly popular for patients and medical professionals alike.

While often effective, these procedures are not suitable for everyone. It is important to discuss the potential risks with your doctor and whether or not your medical history makes you more susceptible to complications. Do not agree to any surgical procedure until you feel that you have a solid understanding of what is going to happen and the possible risks involved.
