Swedish Robotic-Assisted Surgical Program Grows, Continues to Gain Momentum
Date:5/11/2011

ost experienced in the Pacific Northwest," said Richard Bergmann, administrative director of the robotics program at Swedish.  "We're now setting the standard industry-wide by giving physicians a new opportunity to use our new simulator to practice and gain experience in more ways."

In addition, Swedish is the first medical provider on the West Coast to use a fluorescent imaging device to highlight tissue during a procedure. The advancement provides each surgeon with an even more precise target during surgery and offers a greatly enhanced visual field.  Swedish is among a small, select group of medical providers in the United States to have this technology.

The imaging device has a specially designed camera and endoscopes that allow surgeons to capture tissue images along with surrounding blood vessels by injecting a unique fluorescent dye that is activated by infrared light. This technique gives Swedish-affiliated robotic-assisted surgeons new tools that ultimately can lead to better patient outcomes.

Medical Staff's Videos Help People Understand How the Robot-Assist Surgical Device is Controlled

To demonstrate how the da Vinci robotic-assisted surgical system provides surgeons with greater surgical precision and dexterity over existing approaches, the Swedish robotic surgery team produced a series of YouTube videos to help the average person better understand how it works:
