Emanuel Celebrates 100th Case on da Vinci Xi Surgical System

Mar 21, 2019

Emanuel Medical Center is proud to announce that its physicians and surgical team have completed the 100th case on its da Vinci Xi Surgical System. The hospital began utilizing the system at the end of last year and celebrated the milestone this week.

Emanuel da Vinci surgeons celebratingThe da Vinci Xi – recently named Sir Fixalot by 8-year-old Jasilynn Wright, who won Emanuel’s Robot Naming Contest – is designed with the goal of further advancing the technology used in minimally invasive surgery. It 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 and general surgery.

“The da Vinci Xi Surgical System is the pinnacle of minimally invasive surgical technology, providing superior optics, improved ergonomics, and precise instrumentation. The result is smaller scars, faster recovery and better outcomes for patients,” said Lani Dickinson, CEO of Emanuel Medical Center.

The surgical system offers three dimensional high definition visualization and allows for enhanced dexterity and greater precision and control for the surgeon. The surgeon is 100-percent in control of the robotic-assisted da Vinci System, which translates their hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside the patient’s body.

Other patient benefits include reduced trauma to the body, reduced blood loss and need for transfusions, less post-operative pain and discomfort, less risk of infection and less scarring.

Emanuel Medical Center has been utilizing robotic-assisted surgeries for orthopedic procedures for more than a year, and acquired the da Vinci Xi Surgical System to help make minimally invasive surgery options a reality for more people.
