If you have been diagnosed with cancer, it's natural to feel concerned and even a bit frightened. You probably have many questions concerning treatment choices and decisions. Most likely, you find yourself constantly thinking, "How am I going to cope with side effects and when will I feel better again," followed often by "What can I do to prevent the cancer from returning."
At Timpanogos Regional Hospital, we partner with GammaWest to provide prostate and breast brachytherapy. Brachytherapy involves the placement of radiation directly at the site of the cancerous tumor. A key feature of brachytherapy is that the radiation only affects a localized area around the radiation source. These characteristics of brachytherapy provide advantages over External Beam Radiation Treatment.
This treatment is the first of its kind in Utah County and is done at Timpanogos Regional Hospital.
Timpanogos Regional Hospital has several options to meet your surgical needs whether you are in need of inpatient or outpatient surgery in Orem. Our advanced surgical technologies and minimally invasive procedures help patients see greater results with smaller incisions and move on to faster recoveries.
At Timpanogos, we offer advancted robotic technology with the da Vinci® Surgical System which helps surgeons to perform major surgery through very small incisions. This technology enables surgeries that are significantly less invasive and more precise. As a result, patients experience less trauma, reduced pain and minimal scarring. They also recover faster, spend less time in the hospital and more quickly return to normal activities.
This state-of-the-art robotic technology increases surgical choices for patients and their physicians. Integrating computer-enhanced technology with our surgeon's experience and skill enhances healing and promotes a full recovery for a growing number of our patients.
When using the da Vinci Surgical System, the surgeon sits at a console in an operating room - only a few feet away from the patient. He or she is guided by vibrant, 3D images that magnify the surgical site. This allows the surgeon to more clearly see the patient's internal organs as well as vital nerves and blood supply surrounding the organs.
At the console, our surgeons use hand and foot controls to precisely manipulate each of the robot's four arms and the tiny surgical instruments they hold - similar to a video game. The robotic technology enables surgeries to repair or remove diseased organs with minimal trauma to the patient's body.
It is important to note that the robot cannot be programmed, nor can it make decisions on its own. Our surgeons always remain in the operating room during entire procedure, close by their patients. These specialists utilize the surgical system to perform several different types of procedures. Most frequently, that includes prostate surgeries, complex hysterectomies and surgery for benign gynecologic conditions.
Through a combination of innovative technology like the da Vinci Surgical System, cutting-edge medical knowledge, and sincere dedication to our patients, Timpanogos Regional Hospital remains a leading provider of quality healthcare services in Utah. We specialize in performing hysterectomy, prostatectomy, nephrectomy, and acid reflux surgery using the da Vinci Surgical System.
