Swedish's New daVinci Surgical System, Expertise Featured in Seattle Times Article On Minimally Invasive Prostate-Cancer Surgery

SEATTLE, Nov. 9, 2005 -- Swedish Medical Center recently became the first hospital in Washington state to begin using the latest (four-arm) daVinci robotic-assisted Surgical System to allow urologic surgeons to more easily and efficiently remove cancerous prostates. The technology allows surgeons to perform this procedure -- and other endoscopic surgeries (those involving the use of a camera inserted into the body) -- in a more minimally invasive fashion, which results in numerous benefits for patients.

In an effort to help educate consumers about this technology, The Seattle Times took a close look at it and published an article on the topic in their Nov. 9, 2005 issue. To read that article, click here. To read a sidebar article on the causes and symptoms of prostate cancer, click here.
