Dr. Steven Sukin to host demonstration of the da Vinci® robotic surgery system

Urologist Dr. Steven Sukin will host a demonstration of the robotic da Vinci® Surgical System , an advanced minimally invasive treatment option for prostate cancer surgery, on Wednesday, December 9 from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m.

The hospital will also offer free screenings for Body Mass Index (BMI), cholesterol, blood pressure and more.

The event, which is free and open to the public, will be held at St. Luke’s The Woodlands Hospital in conference rooms 3 and 4. To r.s.v.p. please call (936) 266-4050.

St. Luke’s The Woodlands Hospital is among only a handful of facilities across the country to offer this state-of-the-art, robotic minimally-invasive surgical procedure, which can result in faster recovery and less pain and scarring.

Using the da Vinci Surgical System, the surgeon operates while seated comfortably at a console viewing a 3D image of the surgical field. The surgeon's fingers grasp the master controls below the display, with hands and wrists naturally positioned relative to his or her eyes. The system seamlessly translates the surgeon's hand, wrist and finger movements into precise, real-time movements of surgical instruments inside the patient.

St. Luke’s The Woodlands Hospital is located at 17200 St. Luke’s Way in The Woodlands, at the southwest corner of SH 242 (College Park Drive) and Interstate 45. For more information, please call (936) 266-2000
