A Leader In Surgical Technology
For more than one century, Salt Lake Regional Medical Center has stood as a leader in the community, providing high quality health care to residents of the Salt Lake Valley. Now our hospital celebrates a series of firsts. Salt Lake Regional Medical Center is:
- The first hospital in Utah to offer da Vinci hysterectomy (a robot-assisted approach for one of the most common procedures undergone by women in their reproductive years.)
- The first hospital in Utah to be named a Center of Excellence in Robotic Surgery (COERS)
Center of Excellence in Robotic Surgery (COERS)
The Center of Excellence in Robotic Surgery (COERS) program is designed to recognize facilities around the globe that are achieving excellence in patient safety and quality of care. The program is backed by the endorsement of the Clinical Robotic Surgery Association (CRSSA).
As the first facility in the state to bear this accreditation, Salt Lake Regional Medical Center hopes to raise the overall quality of care for patients throughout Utah who may benefit from robot-assisted surgery.
da Vinci® Surgical System
The da Vinci Surgical System is a revolutionary surgical platform that allows specially trained surgeons to perform a wide range of procedures, from thyroidectomy to hysterectomy, using minimally invasive techniques.
The da Vinci robot features multiple arms that are capable of performing maneuvers and rotations beyond the natural ability of the human hand. At all times, these arms are controlled by the surgeon who sits just a few feet away at the control center. A high-definition camera relays a live video feed of the operative area back to the surgeon in 3-D.
Mako® for Hip & Knee Surgery
Specially trained orthopedic surgeons have used Mako technology for years at Salt Lake Regional Medical Center. Mako allows surgeons to treat patients in need of hip or knee replacement surgery. By creating patient-specific models and developing custom surgical plans based on each patient’s unique anatomy, orthopedic surgeons who use Mako are able to provide an advanced, minimally invasive, robot-assisted alternative to patients with osteoarthritis of the hip or knee.
