DaVinci Surgical System at Anderson Hospital PDF Print E-mail

Anderson Hospital is pleased to have been the first hospital to bring this technology to Madison County Residents.

The da Vinci® Si™ has several unique features designed to provide additional clinical benefits and efficiency in the operating room, many of which translate to patient benefits.   These technological advancements provide our surgeons with unparalleled precision, dexterity and control that enable a minimally invasive approach for many complex surgical procedures.

da Vinci’s advanced level of technology takes surgery beyond the limits of the human hand. “This acquisition extends an offering to our patients to receive minimally invasive surgery for a range of complex conditions,” said Lisa Klaustermeier, Chief Nursing Officer.  “It has the capabilities to be used for certain urological, gynecological and general surgery procedures.”

Anderson Hospital Urologists, Dr. Jeff Parres, Dr. Demetrios Katsikas and Dr. Travis Bullock were among the first to utilize the system.  The da Vinci® has become the number one treatment choice for prostate cancer.  “Besides offering real cancer control, the da Vinci prostatectomy helps men feel like themselves again in no time,” said Dr. Jeff Parres, Urologist on staff at Anderson Hospital.   “What’s more — a recovery period of less than 48 hours — half the time after a conventional surgery — lets our patients go home with significantly less pain, and virtually no scarring.”  Dr. Bullock, a specialist in female urology, has already been using the technology at Missouri Baptist.  “The da Vinci system allows me to perform the ‘Gold Standard’ operation for vaginal prolapsed with minimal pain and recovery.  I am excited to be performing this procedure here in Southern Illinois.”

Anderson Hospital has been making a difference in the healthcare of Madison County residents since 1977. We are an independent, not for profit hospital dedicated to creating a health care setting in which quality of life and service excellence are experienced by our patients, their families, the medical staff and the community.  Our 151 bed, acute care facility is technology driven … offering patients cutting-edge diagnostic capabilities not often found in a community setting.
