Southside Hospital has purchased the $2.5 million da Vinci Xi Surgical System as a state-of-the-art option for patients undergoing minimally invasive cardiac, thoracic, gynecologic, urologic, surgical oncology and general surgery.
The Xi robotic system uses laser targeting, a layer of technological assistance that helps the surgeon pinpoint the incision site. The system provides three-dimensional, high-definition views of the patient. The device’s arm even has a greater range of motion than any human, allowing for better access to the surgical site.
This new technology is the latest investment toward Southside Hospital’s commitment to the best, minimally-invasive surgical options that helped the hospital garner the Center of Excellence in Robotic Surgery designation last year from the Surgical Review Corporation.
“Southside Hospital has some of the best robotic surgeons in the area,” said Donna Moravick, NP, executive director of Southside Hospital. “We will take any opportunity we can to provide these top-notch surgeons with the best technology.”
