Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento Pioneers Most-Advanced Surgical Robot in California
Date:7/17/2014

Dr. Patching performed a cholecystectomy that was more difficult than most gallbladder removals because the patient had a lot of scarring around the organ. With a traditional laparoscopic cholecystectomy or one using the prior-generation da Vinci robot, it would be more difficult to maneuver around the scarring to remove the gallbladder. With the da Vinci Xi's increased, human-like dexterity, the surgery was much simpler and led to less pain for the patient.

Dr. Patching said that in many communities surgeons are still using the traditional open surgery approach, which has a recovery period of four to six weeks because of the larger incision that was made to remove the gallbladder. By using the new da Vinci Xi, patients will be back to normal activities within a week.

Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento is part of the groundbreaking Sutter Institute for Minimally Invasive Surgery, which brings the most advanced, minimally invasive procedures to Northern California.

Sutter Medical Center acquired two of the new da Vinci Xi systems, and they will replace the da Vinci robots at Sutter General and Sutter Memorial hospitals that are currently being used for a variety of gynecological, urological and general surgeries. Three Sutter surgeons have already been trained on the da Vinci Xi, and many others will be ready to use the new system before the end of the year. With this new technology and its enhanced features, the medical center plans to expand its use to bariatric, cardiothoracic and other even more complex surgeries.

Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento was the first medical center in the greater Sacramento region to use the da Vinci robotic system, and in the past 10 years its surgeons have used it to perform thousands of successful surgeries.
