Spring Hill, FL – Oak Hill Hospital announces that it has recently acquired the newly refined da Vinci® Si Robotic Assisted Minimally Invasive Surgical System by Intuitive®. This is the region’s most advanced robotic assisted surgical system and will be used in procedures in the areas of: gynecology, oncology, general surgery, and soon in areas of urology, and thoracic surgery.
The newly refined da Vinci® Si Surgical System is a system that allows for single-site surgery. It includes:
- Advanced 3D HD visualization,
- EndoWrist® instrumentation with dexterity and range of motion far greater than the human hand,
- Intuitive® Motion technology, which replicates the experience of open surgery by preserving natural eye-hand-instrument alignment and intuitive instrument control.
- Together, these technological advancements provide unparalleled precision, dexterity, and control that enable a minimally invasive approach to many complex procedures.
The single-site capability allows the surgeon to make a one-time only incision, instead of the usual three.
This more advanced robotic assisted surgical system now allows for increased surgeon control, resulting in increased patient safety. The 3D visualization provides a higher quality HD imagery for the physician. This all results in a faster recovery for the patient and a quicker return to life as usual.
