Florida Medical Center Acquires Second da Vinci Surgical System Robot for Minimally Invasive Surgeries

Mar 3, 2020

Fort Lauderdale, Fla -December 21st 2017- Florida Medical Center is advancing its minimally invasive surgery program with the acquisition of the da Vinci Xi Surgical System.  The da Vinci Xi System was designed with the goal of further advancing the technology used in minimally invasive surgery.  The System can be used across a spectrum of minimally invasive surgical procedures and has been optimized for multi-quadrant surgeries in the areas of gynecology, urology, oncology thoracic, cardiac, hepatobiliary and general surgery.  This is the second da Vinci Surgical System for the hospital and its comprehensive robotic program.

 “With the acquisition of this new System, our goal is to expand our community’s minimally invasive surgical options and provide patients with the best possible care,” said Trey Abshier, hospital CEO. “The combination of our advanced tools and technology and the outstanding judgment and ability of our medical team is what helps us achieve positive outcomes.”

By enabling efficient access throughout the abdomen or chest, the da Vinci Xi System expands upon core da Vinci System features, including wristed instruments, 3D-HD visualization, intuitive motion, and an ergonomic design.  As with all da Vinci Surgical Systems, the surgeon is 100% in control of the robotic-assisted da Vinci System, which translates their hands movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside the patients, body.  The Xi System’s immersive 3D-HD vision system provides surgeons a highly magnified view, extending their eyes and hands into the patient.
