The da Vinci® robotic surgery system is one of the latest advancements in healthcare that has already shown promising results in various procedures. Thanks to this new advancement in minimally invasive surgery, the Lakeview Regional Medical Center can provide superior level of treatment with minimal pain and recovery time.
Robotic surgery is not automated; a specially trained surgeon simply uses the robotic platform to perform complex procedures through tiny keyhole incisions. The da Vinci® surgical system utilizes several articulated arms capable of performing precise micromovements, as well as high-definition 3D camera to provide a crystal clear view of the surgical site.
Robotic surgery is just one of the advanced procedures available at Lakeview Regional Medical Center in Covington, LA.

A healthy diet and exercise routine are essential for taking care of your heart, but what many people don’t know is that stress also plays a major factor in cardiovascular health. Stress not only affects your blood pressure, but also triggers unhealthy habits such as overeating or excessive tobacco and alcohol use. Check out these quick tips from Lakeview Regional Medical Center to protect your heart and simplify your life:
Make Exercise Fun
Many people have difficulty simply finding the time to get out and have fun, let alone exercise. However, the two don’t have to be mutually exclusive. Picking up a hobby such as trail hiking, swimming, biking, or other sports is a great way to burn calories while having fun. If you’re an indoors person, setting up TV or game system in front a treadmill is a great way to combine leisure and exercise. Studies show that exercise lowers stress hormones and increases endorphins levels.
Most adults require about 8 hours of sleep at about the same time every night. A lack of sleep can affect everything from concentration to sex drive, and studies show that it can actually increase appetite and weight gain.
Replace Bad Habits with Good Ones
Bad habits are easy to pick up and hard to break, and they usually develop because of two things: stress and boredom. That’s why it’s often more effective to replace a bad habit with a healthy alternative rather than stopping cold turkey. Remove as many “triggers” from your life as possible—for example, hide the TV remote in a different room. Most importantly, don’t get discouraged by failure.
Organizing is a small but effective way of reducing stress without making major changes to your lifestyle. Whether it’s sorting your email, organizing your desk, cleaning out your car, or simply tidying up the house, studies show that staying organized can reduce stress and improve your concentration.
In everything from healthy living to emergency treatment, Lakeview Regional Medical Center is always prepared to provider compassionate care and advanced treatment.
