Peninsula Regional Medical Center was the first facility on the Delmarva Peninsula to offer patients the surgical benefits of the daVinci High Definition Surgical Robot, the most advanced robotic platform currently available.

This revolutionary robotic-assisted technology, designed to improve the minimally invasive surgical techniques widely practiced at the Medical Center for more than 20 years, is being used by Peninsula Regional Medical Center specialists to further expand their MIS capabilities.

Urology surgeons utilize the daVinci robotic technology for laparoscopic prostate surgery, while cardiothoracic surgeons use the robot to assist with minimally invasive coronary artery bypass surgery. GYN onoclogy surgeons are also using the robot for cases like hysterectomies and oophorectomies, and other surgeons are investigating how it may benefit their patients as well. 

The daVinci® HD Surgical Robot, located tableside in the operating room, allows a surgeon's hand movements to be scaled, filtered and translated into precise movements of microinstruments at the surgical site. The robot features 4 fully interactive arms; one dedicated to a small, high definition scope or camera and the other three to hold high precision surgical instruments. 

From a console inside the operating room and near the patient, the surgeon conducts the procedure using the daVinci system, which precisely translates his/her hand movements to the robot. The magnified, high-resolution, three-dimensional view the surgeon experiences enables him/her to perform precise and complex surgery through very small surgical incisions.
