Sam Bhayani, MD, Washington University urologist and chief medical officer at Barnes-Jewish West County Hospital (BJWCH), and his colleagues have pioneered use of the robot for kidney cancer surgery. Rather than a major incision in traditional open surgeries, da Vinci technology allows for small incisions which are based on the robot's arms, two of which hold surgical instruments while a third is a camera allowing a surgeon seated at a nearby computer console to see inside the body. While the patient lies on the operating room table, the surgeon controls the arms holding surgical instruments steady inside the body. "We are so pleased to be able to offer our community complex robotic surgery," Dr. Bhayani says.
