Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center Acquires da Vinci Surgical System Robot for Minimally Invasive Surgeries

September 20 2019 - Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center is now performing procedures with the da Vinci Xi Surgical System.  The da Vinci Xi System is designed with the goal of further advancing the technology used in minimally invasive surgery.  The System can be used across a spectrum of minimally, invasive surgical procedures and has been optimized for multi-quadrant surgeries in the areas of gynecology, urology, thoracic, cardiac, hepatobiliary, and general surgery.  
 
“The da Vinci Xi System is just one of several technologies we have started using to provide the best possible care for our patients,” said Teresa Urquhart, hospital CEO. “The combination of our advanced tools and technology and the outstanding ability of our medical team is what helps us achieve positive outcomes.”
 
Some of the potential benefits for patients include: 
Less pain
Decrease in blood loss
Less scarring
Fewer complications
Shorter hospital stay
Shorter recovery time
Less need for narcotic pain medicine
Faster return to daily activities
Better clinical outcomes
 
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% in control of the robotic-assisted da Vinci System, which translates their hands movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside the patients, body.  The Xi System’s immersive 3D-HD vision system provides surgeons a highly magnified view, extending their eyes and hands into the patient.
