Waiting for a loved one in surgery

FamilyVue monitors

For those waiting at the hospital during a loved one's surgery, we provide monitors to track the loved one's progress through the procedure. This service, called FamilyVue, displays coded messages that help keep track of the patient's surgical progress.

FamilyVue monitors are located in the Cafeteria and the surgical waiting area on the second floor.
More information, including examples of the screen displays can be found in this FamilyVue brochure.

Da Vinci Robotic Surgery

Today, complex conditions can be treated with minimally invasive surgery using  a da Vinci robotic surgical system.

This system provides your surgeon with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control. It requires only a few small incisions so you can get back to life faster without the usual recovery time needed following traditional open surgery.

Benefits to having surgery with a da Vinci system include:

  • faster recovery and shorter hospital stays
  • less blood loss
  • minimal pain and complications
  • lower risk of infection
  • smaller incisions and less scaring
