PROGRESS IN ROBOTIC ASSISTED SURGERY
Using the da Vinci X surgical system by Intuitive, Dr. Stone states, “This is simply the world’s most advanced technology in laparoscopic surgery, available right here in the Cayman Islands”. The da Vinci robotic-assisted laparoscopic platform brings enhanced visual acuity with precision and dexterity to advanced and complex gynecologic surgeries, performed through incisions less than 1cm in diameter.
With over fifteen years’ experience in robotic surgery, Dr. Stone is an internationally recognized thought-leader in the field. He has performed hundreds of procedures using the system and has also served as a proctor for Intuitive to train other physicians in its use. Dr. Stone is an enthusiastic advocate for the system, saying, “The da Vinci Robotic laparoscopic platform allows me to be a more autonomous, binocular, two and even three armed minimally invasive surgeon”.
With improved recovery time, less scarring and less pain, robotic-assisted laparoscopic surgery offers multiple benefits, allowing the accomplishment of even the most complex and challenging cases in laparoscopy.
Dr. David Stone and OceanMed provide this state-of-the-art service to women for a variety of conditions, including fibroids, endometriosis, and pelvic organ prolapse. Dr. Stone states, “As a gynecologist, the robot can assist me in performing resection of endometriosis, myomectomies (uterine fibroid removal), pelvic organ prolapse repairs, and hysterectomies through incisions smaller than the width of a finger.”
