Rapid advances in technology have turned major surgical operations into tidy, efficient procedures that can reduce recovery times and improve patient outcomes. St. Francis-Emory Healthcare is one of the leading healthcare organizations for using these kinds of technologies.

The Da Vinci Xi is St. Francis’ newest robotic surgical system featuring enhanced detail and precision with minimally invasive incisions. The Da Vinci System enables surgeons to be more precise, advancing their technique and enhancing their capability in performing complex minimally invasive surgery. The system replicates the surgeon’s movements in real time. It cannot be programmed, nor can it make decisions on its own to move in any way or perform any type of surgical maneuver without the surgeon’s input.

This system allows for a shorter hospital stay, less pain, less risk of infection, less blood loss, fewer transfusions, less scarring, faster recovery and a quicker return to normal daily activities.

So far, Da Vinci systems have been used for general, urologic, gynecologic, thoracoscopic, and thoracoscopically-assisted cardiotomy procedures. Featuring clearance by the FDA, Da Vinci allows for a safer surgery experience and is covered by most major insurance providers.

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a condition that may require surgery, you owe it to yourself to learn about all of your options, including the most effective, least invasive surgical treatments available. Surgeons and hospitals are re-writing standards for surgical care by changing the experience of surgery.
