Da Vinci Surgical System

Daviess Community Hospital's surgical unit is equipped (February 2024) with the cutting-edged da Vinci Xi® surgical system by Intuitive. Depending on the procedure, robotic-assisted surgery may result in a shorter hospital stay and a lower rate of complications than open surgery. Compared to laparoscopic surgery, robotic-assisted may reduce conversions to open surgery. The system can be used across a spectrum of minimally invasive surgical procedures and enables multi-quadrant access for urology, and general surgeries.

By enabling efficient access throughout the abdomen or chest, the da Vinci Xi system expands upon core da Vinci® system features, including wristed instruments, 3DHD 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 their hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside the patient’s body. The Xi® system’s immersive 3DHD vision system provides surgeons a highly magnified view, virtually extending their eyes and hands into the patient. Key features include:

  • Overhead instrument arm architecture designed to facilitate anatomical access from virtually any position
  • Endoscope digital architecture that creates a simpler, more compact design with improved vision definition and clarity
  • An ability to attach the endoscope to any arm, providing flexibility for visualizing the surgical site
  • Smaller, thinner arms with joints designed to offer a greater range of motion than ever before
  • Longer instrument shafts designed to give surgeons greater operative reach

The da Vinci Xi system is an expandable technology platform designed to accommodate and seamlessly integrate many current technologies and future innovations in areas such as imaging, advanced instruments, and anatomical access.
