da Vinci Si Surgical System®
Advancements in robotic surgery
Phoenix Baptist Hospital utilizes the da Vinci Si® Surgical System, the latest generation of robotic technology for minimally invasive surgical procedures. The newest version of the high-tech equipment offers 3-D and high-definition vision for superior clarity, and provides surgeons with unparalleled accuracy, dexterity and control, in addition to offering patients smaller incisions and shorter recovery times.
The da Vinci Si® was released in April. Unlike the older version (the S model), this third generation utilizes extended features for surgeons such as 3-D and HD visualization for highly accurate depth perception of tissue and surrounding anatomy, an upgraded user interface, a light-weight camera with buttons for focus control, and new console settings for greater comfort.
The many patient benefits include smaller incisions, shorter recovery time and hospital stay, less risk of infection and blood loss, reduced scarring, and quicker return to normal daily activities.
Phoenix Baptist Hospital and Paradise Valley Hospital are both utilizing the da Vinci Si® system for minimally invasive procedures including urology, gynecology and general surgery.
