Robotic-Assisted Surgery for Gastrointestinal, Gynecological, Thoracic and Urological Procedures

Adventist Health Simi Valley has acquired the latest da Vinci Xi Robotic Surgical System from Intuitive Surgical, Inc. The da Vinci surgical system brings the most advanced robotic technology to patients and physicians in the area.

Many of the minimally invasive procedures performed using the da Vinci system allow patients to have their procedure and then comfortably recover at home the same day. Other benefits for patients include less post-surgical pain, shorter hospital stays for inpatient procedures and faster return to normal daily activities.

Although the da Vinci is referred to as a “robot,” the system is not autonomous. It does not perform surgery, and the surgeon is in complete control of the instruments at all times. 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.

The system can be used for procedures as wide-ranging as gallbladder, kidney stones, and overactive bladder issues to infertility and cancer treatment.
