The da Vinci® Surgical System is powered by state-of-the-art robotic technology. The system allows your surgeon’s hand movements to be scaled, filtered and translated into precise movements of micro-instruments within the operative site. The magnified, three-dimensional view enables the surgeon to perform precise surgery in complex procedures through small surgical incisions. More about the da Vinci® Surgical System >>
Community Breast Care was the first in Indianapolis to offer a new breast cancer treatment for women age 45 and older who have early breast cancer—intraoperative radiation therapy (IORT).
This groundbreaking treatment is targeted, which results in less overall radiation therapy with similar outcomes to the standard six-week treatment course.
Additional benefits include less irritation of healthy breast tissue, minimized exposure to the chest cavity and underlying organs, and fewer skin reactions, such as redness, rashes and irritation. Learn more >>

Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) is a condition in which the pelvic organs - bladder, bowel, or uterus - protrude into the vagina. POP can cause symptoms such as a vaginal bulge, pelvic pressure or discomfort, or difficulty with bladder or bowel function. Many factors are involved in the development of POP, such as weakening of the pelvic muscles, damage to the connective tissue or nerves of the pelvis, and chronic conditions or activities that increase abdominal pressure.

Normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH), an abnormal increase in cereobrospinal fluid in the brain, affects up to 375,000 Americans. The symptoms can be alarming—difficulty walking, urinary incontinence and mild dementia or memory problems—and they might resemble Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s diseases.
Community neurosurgeons can treat NPH with a procedure that is quick and easy to do, and has minimal risk. The treatment allows patients to return to a full, productive life, with symptoms often diminishing within a few weeks. Even dementia, which is usually irreversible, can be lessened if it’s caused by NPH and has been treated properly. More about NPH diagnosis and treatment >>
