Robotic Surgery

Some patients may be eligible for surgery performed using the da Vinci XI Single Console Robotic System. The da Vinci enables our surgeons to use computer-guided, enhanced 3-D visuals for bariatric, hernia, urologic, gynecologic, and general surgery procedures.

What is robotic-assisted surgery?

If you and your doctor decide that robotic-assisted surgery is right for you, here is what to expect.

During robotic-assisted surgery, your surgeon makes a few small incisions, then uses a 3DHD camera for a crystal-clear, magnified view of the surgical area.

He or she sits at a console next to you and operates through the incisions using tiny instruments and the camera.

Every hand movement your surgeon makes is translated by the da Vinci system in real-time, bending and rotating the instruments so he or she can operate on your digestive system.

Advanced Da Vinci Robotic System Available

The advancement in surgical systems typically results in shorter hospitalization, reduced post-operative pain, faster recovery time, fewer complications, smaller incisions, and minimal scarring.


Lompoc Valley Medical Center is an SRC-accredited Center of Excellence in Robotic Surgery (COERS)

SRC is a nonprofit patient safety organization that accredits the top hospitals, outpatient facilities and medical providers who excel in patient care.

To achieve accreditation, providers undergo a rigorous, unbiased inspection to ensure they meet nationally and internationally recognized standards of excellence. The inspection evaluates treatment pathways, consultative services, equipment, patient education and support groups, and surgical experience.

Patients can trust SRC’s gold seal to identify healthcare providers who deliver excellence in patient safety and care. The requirements for accreditation programs have been proven to improve outcomes and reduce the time patients spend in the hospital.

Compared to other surgical approaches, robotic-assisted colectomy may result in a shorter hospital stay, fewer complications1 and lower blood loss.

Traditional open surgical procedures require a surgeon to create a large incision on the patient to see the area of medical concern. The da Vinci system enables the surgeon to make a few much smaller incision points. The da Vinci’s four robotic arms are maneuvered by the surgeon via a console, allowing precise movements of instruments inside the body.
