Advocate Sherman Hospital's Plans For The da Vinci System.

At Advocate Sherman Hospital, the da Vinci System will initially be used by our urologists for prostatectomies and other urologic procedures.

This minimally invasive approach, utilizing the latest in surgical and robotics technologies, is ideal for delicate urologic surgery, in which the target site is not only tightly confined but also surrounded by nerves. Other uses of the da Vinci include cardiothoracic and gynecologic surgery.
