ChinoValley Medical Center Celebrates Installation of the Da Vinci Robot
Chino, CA, June 4, 2013 – Chino Valley Medical Center announces the installation of a state of the art Da Vinci Robotic Surgical System. This new addition to the center will officially begin its duties on June 6, 2013.
The Chino Valley Medical Center is pleased to continue providing patients with the most advanced surgical equipment on the market. The Da Vinci Robot provides surgeons with the ability to operate using minimally invasive, minute incisions, and is known to cause patients less pain and result in shorter hospital stays and faster recovery time.
According to Dr. Harry W. Ou, MD, "Da Vinci robotic system provides the most advanced and safe technique of minimally invasive surgery. This technology provides surgeons with better visualization and ergonomics as well as less pain, smaller scars, and faster recovery for the patients. I'm excited to help Chino Valley Medical Center offer robotic surgery to our community."
The Da Vinci Robot provides doctors with superior vision and allows the surgeon to control four laparoscopic arms which result in increased precision, dexterity and improved access. It has achieved positive results in urologic, cardiovascular, vascular, gynecologic surgery and more. According to Intuitive Surgical, makers of the Da Vinci, roughly 3,000 peer-reviewed studies have been published demonstrating the clinical effectiveness of the Da Vinci Surgical System and it is currently being used in more than 2,025 hospitals worldwide.
"We're very excited at Chino Valley Medical Center to offer cutting edge medicine as a top 100 hospital. We are always looking for innovative and effective ways to serve our community," said Dr. James M. Lally, President and Chief Medical Officer for Chino Valley Medical Center. Additionally, the hospital plans to hold a contest titled "Name the Robot" in a local elementary school later this year
