Patients benefit from robotic surgery as well. Less pain, smaller scars, and a quicker recovery time are all benefits from the da Vinci. "Patients can get back to life faster," said Dave Schwabacher, RN, Robotics Coordinator at St. John's.
   
The new da Vinci SI was launched nationally in April. "St. John's is committed to investing in medical technology that improves recovery times and reduces complications for our patients. In 2004, we were the first hospital in the region to acquire a da Vinci robot. Our decision to upgrade to the latest system underscores our ongoing dedication to provide better outcomes for our patients," said Bob Ritz, President and CEO, St. John's Hospital.

The new da Vinci SI offers greater benefits to surgeons and clinicians, including:

 
  • Advanced 3D HD visualization with up to 12x magnification
  • An updated user interface for streamlined setup and Operating Room turnover times
  • Enhanced digital OR integration
  • Dual-console capability to support training and collaboration during minimally invasive surgery.

These technological advancements provide surgeons with unparalleled precision, dexterity and control that allow for a minimally invasive approach to many complex surgical procedures. Robotic surgery at St. John's has primarily involved urological and gynecological procedures, but also includes cardiac, colorectal and infertility procedures.
