As technical advancements in healthcare make leaps and bounds forward, patient options for surgery continue to expand and improve. Surgery generally falls into three categories: general surgery in which surgeons make incisions large enough to see the entire surgical area; traditional laparoscopic surgery, a method that uses special long-handled tools and magnified images; and robotic-assisted surgery, which allows your surgeon to perform surgery using enhanced technological tools and magnified 3D imaging to achieve the most successful results possible. The da Vinci Xi® falls into the last category.
This powerful surgical system allows your surgeon to work through tiny incisions in the skin with smooth precision. The da Vinci Xi’s tools offer greater range of motion than the human hand, and a visually acute and magnified surgical field means your doctor can access hard-to-get-to areas of your body while still applying maximum control.
This allows your surgeon to work through small incisions (typically 8 – 13mm) instead of large cuts into the body.
Enhanced precision and control.
The da Vinci Xi’s surgical field is in crystal-clear 3D view and magnified 10x its normal size so your doctor can see the fine details of your surgery.
Improved outcomes, potentially faster healing times and fewer complications.
Minimizing surgical trauma to your body with this robotic-assisted option can result in better results and shorter recovery.
Aspen Valley hospital currently provides the following general surgery services with the da Vinci Xi surgical robot:
After checking in, your surgeon and care team review the procedure and answer any questions you might have. An anesthesiologist then administers medicine to ensure you experience no pain during the procedure.
Your surgeon stays in the room the entire time, controlling the robotic system.
Once the surgery is complete, you’re transported to a recovery wing of the hospital.
