What is the Da Vinci Xi Surgical System?

The Da Vinci Xi Surgical System is a robotic surgical system that uses a minimally invasive surgical approach. The system is manufactured by the company Intuitive. The system is used for prostatectomies and increasingly for cardiac valve repair and renal and gynecologic surgical procedures.

How does the Da Vinci Xi Surgical System work?

The system consists of three components: the surgeon console, the patient cart, and the vision cart.

  • The surgeon console allows the surgeon to control the instruments and view the surgical field in high-definition 3D.
  • The patient cart holds the camera and instruments that the surgeon controls from the console.
  • The vision cart makes communication between components and supports the 3D high-definition vision system.

What are the benefits of the Da Vinci Xi Surgical System?

The surgical system provides flexibility for procedures performed across the robotics program. It offers broader anatomical access, enhanced ease of use, and complete integration of the most advanced da Vinci Technology. It also enables surgeons to operate through one or a few small incisions, which may result in less blood loss, less pain, shorter hospital stays, and faster recovery.

Why choose the Da Vinci Xi Surgical System?

The system is designed to bring the technology used in minimally invasive surgery to the next level. It can be used across a spectrum of minimally invasive and complex surgical procedures by providing surgeons with high precision and dexterity. The system also offers a variety of surgical instruments for different surgical procedures.
