Robotic Surgery - da Vinci Surgical System

da Vinci® Surgical System: Changing the Experience of Surgery at Berkshire Medical Center

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a condition that may require surgery, you owe it to yourself to learn about all of your medical options, including the most effective, least invasive surgical treatments available.

Building on an already robust minimally invasive surgery program at BMC, the da Vinci® Surgical System provides surgeons with an alternative to both traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy, putting the surgeon's hands at the controls of a state-of-the-art robotic platform. The da Vinci System enables surgeons at BMC to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions with unmatched precision.

BMC is using the da Vinci Si HD system, and is the only hospital in Western Massachusetts with the Si HD technology.  

For the patient, benefits of robotic surgery may include:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Less scarring
  • Shorter recovery time
  • A faster return to normal daily activities
  • In many cases, better clinical outcomes

BMC utilizes the da Vinci Surgical System for Gynecologic surgery, Urologic Prostate and Kidney surgery, and Thoracic and Bariatric Weight Loss surgeries.
