Brooksville Regional Hospital is the only hospital in Hernando and Citrus Counties using the daVinci surgical system. Used primarily in gynecological and urological procedures, surgery with the daVinci surgery system has many potential patient benefits, including less risk of infection, blood loss, significantly less pain, shorter hospital stays and faster recovery times. Some surgery patients, for example, may only require four small incisions as opposed to a customary large incision. With small incisions, these patients often leave the hospital and experience a recovery that is only a fraction of the time required for a more traditional operation.
