Robotic-Assisted Surgery for General, Urological, and Gynecological Procedures

The da Vinci Xi Surgical System brings the most advanced robotic technology to patients and physicians in the area. Many of the minimally invasive procedures allow patients to have their procedure done, then comfortably recover at home the same day. This results in less post-surgical pain, shorter hospital stays and faster return to normal daily activities.

Versatile for procedures as wide-ranging as gallbladder, kidney stones, and overactive bladder issues to hysterectomy and prostate cancer. Our system also includes dual viewing consoles for surgeons interested in training with Robotic Surgeons, with a direct view of what the surgeon is seeing.

Although the da Vinci is referred to as a “robot,” the system is not autonomous. It does not perform surgery, and the surgeon is always in complete control of the instruments. With the surgeon sitting at a console just a few feet from the patient, the da Vinci system translates the surgeon’s hand movements into corresponding micro-movements of the surgical instruments. This system enables physicians to perform delicate and complex operations through tiny incisions with enhanced dexterity and control.
