Day Kimball Healthcare has added the da Vinci Xi Surgical System, the most advanced minimally invasive option for a variety of surgical treatments, to our suite of surgical services. Integrating this leading-edge technology into our operating rooms has taken us to the next generation of surgical capabilities and revolutionizes the patient-surgical experience. Our highly-skilled and robotically trained team of surgeons can now perform minimally invasive procedures with greater precision, smaller incisions, and faster recovery times than ever before.
DKH Surgeons use the da Vinci Xi Surgical System to perform surgery for a variety of medical conditions to bring much-needed additional treatment options to our community in the areas of:
The da Vinci surgical system gives your surgeon an advanced set of instruments to use in performing robotic-assisted minimally invasive surgery. The da Vinci system translates your surgeon’s hand movements at the console in real-time, bending and rotating the instruments while performing the procedure. The tiny wristed instruments move like a human hand, but with a greater range of motion. The da Vinci vision system also delivers highly magnified, 3D high-definition views of the surgical area. The instrument size makes it possible for surgeons to operate through one or a few small incisions.
The use of high-definition 3D cameras allows surgeons close-up views of areas they can’t see during open surgery. Fully articulating robotic arms mimic the movement of hands, allowing surgeons to have greater dexterity and control than is possible with conventional laparoscopic instruments. It provides a natural extension of the surgeon’s eyes and hands with highly magnified 3D-HD visualization and wrist instruments that bend and rotate far beyond what the human hand can do. It not only integrates with current technologies but also allows for future innovations, further expanding its capabilities in the future.
The da Vinci Xi robotic system offers a number of benefits for patients, including:
If your doctor recommends surgery, talk to your surgeon about your options and concerns. Your physician will help you to make the best decision for your situation and help to put you at ease.
