Join us on March 2nd as we welcome Dr. Dino Santacroce.

In 2003 Mercy St. Vincent became the first hospital in Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan, and the 99th hospital in the nation, to offer state-of-the-art robotic surgery with the daVinci Surgical System. Today we are the only system in the area to have two daVinci Surgical Systems. In just eight years our surgeons have performed more than 1,500 robotically-assisted procedures, the highest total volume of robotic cases in the city of Toledo.

As an expert in robotic surgery, Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center is delighted that Dr. Dino Santacroce is available to care for patients.  Dr. Santacroce is an Urologist with the Robotic and Minimally Invasive Urologic Surgery Institute of NWO and is Assistant Professor of Urology at the University of Toledo Medical Center.  Dr. Santacroce received his undergraduate degree from The Ohio State University, his medical degree from The University of Toledo – Medical College of Ohio and completed his residency in Urologic Surgery through the Medical College as well. 

Thus far, Dr. Santacroce has earned the Edward F. Ockuly Award for outstanding achievements in clinical Urology and recently scored the highest in the nation on the Urology Inservice Examination.  Dr. Santacroce has served the Ohio Urologic Society as Resident Representative and has several areas of research experience. 

A technician from Intuitive Surgical will be joining Dr. Santacroce for the presentation.  Intuitive Surgical has brought the innovative technology of the da Vinci robot to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center and this technology is assisting Dr. Santacroce in providing expert care to his patients.
