The Hospitals of Providence Memorial Campus has added a second fourth-generation Xi robotic surgical system, expanding its ability to offer robotic surgeries to patients.
“The Hospitals of Providence continues to expand technology and resources to better serve our patients,” said Dr. Salvador Saldivar, Gynecological Oncologist and Medical Director for Robotic Surgery for The Hospitals of Providence Memorial Campus.
“The da Vinci Xi provides a less invasive surgery equating to better outcomes for our patients by decreasing the length of stay in the hospital, faster recovery times and less risk of infection,” Dr. Saldivar added
The Xi advances minimally invasive surgery for patients and surgeons by offering revolutionary anatomical access, magnified 3D high-definition vision and special wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human wrist. The surgical system is optimized for highly complex surgeries.
Officials with the Hospitals of Providence say the primary advantage of robotic assisted procedures, are accuracy and precision.
“With the addition of this latest robotic surgical system, The Hospitals of Providence now offers seven robots, giving more surgeons the tools they need to better care for our patients.”
