Heritage Valley Health System recently acquired the da Vinci Xi Surgical System. The da Vinci® Xi Surgical System is an innovative tool that utilizes an advanced robotic computer and optical technologies to assist surgeons in a variety of procedures. This state-of-the-art da Vinci Xi system is a sophisticated surgical platform designed to facilitate complex procedures using a minimally invasive approach, available at Heritage Valley Beaver, Heritage Valley Kennedy, and Heritage Valley Sewickley.
The da Vinci® Xi™ Surgical System
The da Vinci Xi System was designed with the goal of further advancing the technology used in minimally invasive surgery. The System 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 and general surgery.
By enabling efficient access throughout the abdomen or chest, the da Vinci Xi System expands upon core da Vinci System features, including wristed instruments, 3D-HD visualization, intuitive motion, and an ergonomic design. As with all da Vinci Surgical Systems, the surgeon is 100% in control of the robotic-assisted da Vinci System, which translates his/her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside the patient’s body. The Xi System’s immersive 3D-HD vision system provides surgeons a highly magnified view, virtually extending their eyes and hands into the patient.
The da Vinci Xi System is an expandable technology platform that is designed to accommodate and seamlessly integrate a range of current technologies, as well as future innovations, in areas such as imaging, advanced instruments, and anatomical access. We are truly thrilled to be a leader in this field and look forward to continuing to bring western Pennsylvania minimally invasive surgical options.
