Swedish American Da Vinci® Surgery in Rockford IL




Da Vinci Surgery Rockford IL Finding out that you need surgery can be unsettling and even frightening. Discussing all surgical options with your doctor is an important step in understanding what is right for you.

If your doctor recommends da Vinci Surgery as one of your options, you'll be glad to know that this less invasive technique is available at SwedishAmerican for general, gynecology and urology procedures.

With da Vinci, the cuts (incisions) made in your body by your surgeon are much smaller than the cut made during traditional (also called "open") surgery. Compared with open surgery, having da Vinci Surgery may offer you:
  • A shorter hospital stay
  • Less blood loss
  • Fewer complications
  • Less need for narcotic pain medicine
  • A faster recovery
  • Smaller incisions for minimal scarring
Over the past decade, more than 1.5 million surgeries have been performed worldwide using the da Vinci® Surgical System. Since its launch, da Vinci has greatly reduced the number of open surgeries for many common operations.
