We’re bringing a new era of surgical innovation to the Cayman Islands

Focused on a better patient experience and better surgical outcomes, we have introduced minimally invasive robotic-assisted procedures using the da Vinci surgical system.

As with all of our surgical services, every robotic-assisted procedure is performed by our highly experienced and skilled team of surgeons, nurses and supporting specialists.


Your surgeon in control

Your surgeon performs robotic-assisted surgery using a da Vinci system because it extends the capabilities of their eyes and hands.

Your surgeon is 100% in control of the robotic-assisted da Vinci System, which translates your surgeon’s hand movements at the console in real-time, bending and rotating the instruments while your surgeon performs the procedure.

What is the da Vinci Surgical System?

The da Vinci Surgical System consists of:

Surgeon Console

Your surgeon sits at the console, controlling the instruments while viewing your anatomy in high-definition 3D.

Patient Care

Positioned alongside the bed, the patient cart holds the camera and instruments that the surgeon controls from the console.

Vision Cart

The vision cart makes communication between components possible and supports the 3D high-definition vision system.

Benefits of Robotic-Assisted Surgery

For most patients, the potential benefits of robotic surgery over traditional surgery, include:

  • Fewer major complications
  • Less blood loss and fewer transfusions
  • Small incisions for minimal scarring
  • Less time in intensive care unit (ICU)
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Faster recovery and return to normal activities
  • Higher patient satisfaction

Possible benefits compared to traditional laparoscopy include:

  • Less blood loss
  • Lower conversion rate to open surgery
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Less need for narcotic pain medicine


Robotic-assisted surgery with da Vinci

The da Vinci surgical system was one of the first robotic-assisted, minimally invasive surgical systems cleared by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

More than 8.5 million procedures have been performed using da Vinci Surgical Systems.
