Offering Support in Good Times and Bad

When women are faced with a major life change, loss or personal illness, they often find that being with others who are sharing the same experience can help. Baptist Health Lexington offers many free support groups, including:

  • Perinatal Bereavement Program - to meet the needs of parents who have experienced a miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, stillbirth or newborn death. Trained nurses, social workers and chaplains are available to consult with parents and other family members who are experiencing the loss of a baby or unexpected end of a pregnancy. The Perinatal Bereavement Program can be accessed by calling 859-260-6904.
  • Cancer-related support groups - call 859-260-4271 for more information.

If you or a loved one is hospitalized, our chaplains are available to talk with you about your concerns, pray with you, provide support, help with difficult decisions or help you celebrate the joy of a new life.

da Vinci


Baptist Health Lexington proudly offers the da Vinci® Surgical System, which uses advanced robotic technology to provide precise, minimally invasive procedures for men and women.

The da Vinci System enhances surgical capabilities by allowing your surgeon to perform complex procedures  through tiny surgical openings.  It allows your surgeon's hand movements to be scaled, filtered and translated into precise movements of micro-instruments within the operative site, without damaging surrounding tissue.

Benefits of da Vinci Surgery

The da Vinci Surgical System has been successfully used in thousands of procedures worldwide, offering numerous potential benefits over traditional surgeries, including:

  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Less pain
  • Faster recovery
  • Quicker return to normal activities
  • Less risk of wound infection
  • Less blood loss
  • Less scarring

da Vinci® Hysterectomy

Hysterectomy can sometimes be performed through the vagina.  However, when the uterus is enlarged from fibroids or cancer, an abdominal hysterectomy is preferable.  This requires a 6-12 inch incision.  In some cases, doctors also have to remove the ovaries because they are thought to release hormones contributing to the condition.  If your doctor recommends a hysterectomy, you may be a candidate for a new, less invasive surgical  procedure called da Vinci® Hysterectomy.

da Vinci® Prostatectomy

One of the most common treatments for prostate cancer involves the surgical removal of the prostate gland, known as radical prostatectomy.  Traditional radical prostatectomy requires a large, 8-10 inch incision.  This open surgery commonly results in substantial blood loss, a lengthy and uncomfortable recovery and the risk of impotence and incontinence.  If your doctor recommends surgery to treat your prostate cancer, you may be a candidate for a new, less invasive surgical  procedure called da Vinci® Prostatectomy.
