CentraState Adds Latest Robotic Technology to its Surgical Capabilities

By |2020-04-07T10:28:27-04:00March 29th, 2017|

CentraState Medical Center recently enhanced its current da Vinci minimally invasive robotic surgical system with the latest-generation da Vinci Xi robot. Dr. Thomas Kayal was the first to use the new system for a rectosigmoid resection performed last month.

The Xi’s expanded capabilities includes high-definition optics optimized for complex, multi-quadrant surgeries, as well as routine minimally invasive procedures. Up to now, many delicate surgical procedures could only be performed using traditional open surgery, but with the latest robotic technology, patients experience less blood loss, reduced post-surgical pain, less pain medication and, a shorter hospital stay, and faster recovery.

The new Xi robot complements the da Vinci robotic surgery technology that CentraState introduced into its lineup of surgical capabilities in 2010. CentraState’s specially trained surgeons have successfully performed more than 1,380 robot-assisted surgeries, including general, bariatric, cardiothoracic, gynecologic, colorectal, and urologic surgeries, as well as hernia and gall bladder procedures.
