da Vinci Robotic Surgery

Newman Regional Health is equipped with the latest robotic-assisted surgical equipment, the da Vinci Xi robotic surgery system. This high-tech device does not replace the skills of a highly trained and experienced surgeon, but rather enhances their ability to make complex surgical procedures better for the patient through the precision articulation of instruments in a less invasive manner than open surgery.

Working from a bedside console in the operating room, your surgeon uses controls to execute tremor-free, intricate movements of surgical instruments at the end of high-tech surgical arms. The tools attached to the arms are mounted on robotic wrists that allow for 360° movement. The system also allows the surgeon to enhance their view of the surgical field by engaging various tools and a crystal-clear 3D high definition monitor with up to 10 power magnification.

There are many benefits for the patient including comparable or fewer:

  • complications
  • blood transfusions
  • postoperative infections
  • lower length of stay
  • additional surgical procedures.
