David Walters, M.D.
You have just been diagnosed with a condition that requires surgery. Not long ago, your options might have been limited to traditional surgery with a large open incision, or laparoscopy, which uses small incisions but is typically limited to less-complicated procedures.
Through the use of the da Vinci Si® Surgical System, surgeons at Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center can offer a minimally invasive option for complex surgical procedures. With the latest da Vinci Si® technology and a team of surgeons with extensive experience, robotic surgery can offer a safer, more comfortable and more effective option for patients with prostate cancer, gynecological disorders, colorectal cancer, and many benign conditions including diverticulitis and inflammatory bowel disease.
One of our latest innovations is the introduction of single-incision robotic surgery to treat hernias, gallbladder disease and other abdominal conditions with no visible scar.
In prostate cancer treatment, millimeters matter. Studies show da Vinci prostatectomy provides excellent cancer removal with greater surgical precision, offering many men fewer side effects than conventional surgery.
The Saint Francis team has performed more robotic colorectal surgeries than any other hospital in New England, and ranks in the top 10 for volume in the United States, numbers that add up to better results.
Hysterectomy is the second-most common surgical procedure in the United States and now it can be performed through four dime-sized incisions, for a better recovery and better results.
Forget Depends. Many women have problems down there that can cause a mad dash to the ladies' room, or on the opposite end, force you to sit there forever. Pelvic floor disorders can be embarrassing. They can be uncomfortable. And they can be fixed.
