da Vinci Xi™ Surgical System designed for minimally invasive surgeries

Holy Cross Hospital has acquired the da Vinci Xi™ Surgical System, which further advances the technology used in minimally invasive surgery.

The da Vinci Xi Surgical System has been optimized for multi-quadrant surgeries in the areas of gynecology, urology, thoracic, cardiac and general surgery.

“Holy Cross Hospital continues to strive for excellence in technology,” said Patrick A. Taylor, M.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of Holy Cross Hospital. “The da Vinci Xi System can be used across a spectrum of minimally invasive surgical procedures. As a result, patients may benefit from shorter hospital stays and shorter recovery times.”

By enabling efficient access throughout the abdomen or chest, the da Vinci Xi System expands upon core da Vinci System features, including wristed instruments, 3D-HD visualization, intuitive motion and an ergonomic design. As with all da Vinci Surgical Systems, the surgeon is 100 percent in control of the robotic-assisted da Vinci System, which translates his/her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside the patient’s body. The Xi System’s immersive 3D-HD vision system provides surgeons a highly magnified view, virtually extending their eyes and hands into the patient.

Serious complications may occur in any surgery, including da Vinci Surgery, up to and including death. Risks include, but are not limited to, injury to tissues and organs and conversion to other surgical techniques. If your doctor needs to convert the surgery to another surgical technique, this could result in a longer operative time, additional time under anesthesia, additional or larger incisions and/or increased complications. Individual surgical results may vary. Patients who are not candidates for non-robotic minimally invasive surgery are also not candidates for da Vinci Surgery. Patients should talk to their doctor to decide if da Vinci Surgery is right for them. Patients and doctors should review all available information on non-surgical and surgical options in order to make an informed decision.
