Intermountain Medical Center introduces the newest model of the Da Vinci Xi robotic surgery system to expand benefits of robotic surgery to patients needing urologic, gynaecologic, and general surgery.
“We installed the newest da Vinci robotic platform a year earlier than scheduled,” said Urologist Jay Bishoff, MD, Medical Director of the Intermountain Urological Institute. “Patients who benefit from robotic or laparoscopic surgery can get more precise, more effective surgical care, a shorter recovery, and lower rates of complications.”
A surgeon inserts an endoscopic camera into the surgical field through small incisions and sits at a console while viewing a high-definition, 3D image of the patient’s target anatomy, in the da Vinci process. The da Vinci translates hand, wrist, and finger movements the surgeon makes at the console into precise, real-time movement of surgical instruments attached to three or four robotic arms.
