Date:11/11/2009

patients have shorter hospital stays, fewer complications, less pain, less scarring and quicker recovery times," said Albert Pisani, M.D., a board-certified gynecologic oncologist on staff at El Camino Hospital who has performed more than a quarter of the robotic surgeries at the hospital including the "da Vinci Hysterectomy" with lymph node removal for gynecologic cancers.

"El Camino Hospital has performed more than 500 robotic surgery cases in the last year," said CEO Ken Graham. "It is a proven technique, and we expect the upgraded systems will help our surgeons get closer to our goal to be in the top five percent of hospitals in the United States for quality across all clinical areas by 2012."

El Camino Hospital first began conducting procedures with the da Vinci System in the spring of 2007. Since then, the hospital's specialized robotic surgery team has used the da Vinci System to treat hundreds of cancers of the prostate, uterus, bariatric surgeries, and ob-gyn/ benign disease conditions.

About the da Vinci Surgical System

The da Vinci Surgical System is a robotic surgical system that facilitates complex surgery using a minimally invasive approach. A surgeon controls the system's four interactive robotic arms from the console. The fourth arm is an endoscopic camera that allows the surgeon a full stereoscopic, 3-D image of the procedure while maneuvering the arms with two foot pedals and hand controllers. The da Vinci System scales, filters and translates the surgeon's hand movements into more precise micro-movements of the instruments to perform complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions.

The updated and simplified user interface is designed to enhance operating room efficiency and increase surgeon control of system settings and adjustments. Newly upgradeable architecture and compatibility with existing OR suite technology facilitates the seamless integration of the da Vinci Si
