Northwest Community Hospital – DaVinci Surgical System

Northwest Community Hospital – DaVinci Surgical System
Northwest Community Hospital is the first robotic surgery institute of its kind in the tri-state area. Surgeons from around the country travel to Arlington Heights to learn how to use the DaVinci Surgical System for Hysterectomies and other Gynecological procedures.

Due to the volume and complexity of robotic surgeries performed, NCH has been named a Robotic Surgery Epicenter by Intuitive Surgical, maker of the da Vinci robot. The Robotic Institute specializes in surgical treatments for benign gynecological conditions, such as:

Hysterectomy—da Vinci provides a superior surgical tool for hysterectomies, including radical hysterectomies.
Gynecological procedures—including the latest treatments for endometriosis, uterine fibroids, heavy uterine bleeding and uterine prolapse.

As the first gynecology Epicenter in the tri-state area of Illinois, Wisconsin and Indiana, one of only 22 of its kind in the country, the Robotic Institute is a referral center for complex gynecology cases. Individual doctors and entire surgical teams from around the United States visit the Robotic Gynecologic Surgery Institute on a weekly basis to observe the NCH robotic surgical team perform sophisticated, minimally invasive procedures.
