Odessa Regional Medical Center (ORMC) is pleased to announce the recent acquisition of the next frontier for minimally invasive surgery, the da Vinci Xi Surgical System. This step will continue to provide groundbreaking robotic technology to residents of the Permian Basin and surrounding communities.
“We are truly thrilled to be a leader in Single-Site surgical procedures,” said Stacey Brown, President at Odessa Regional Medical Center. “The addition of this cutting-edge technology will continue to demonstrate our dedication to patients by providing them with the most advanced minimally invasive surgical options.”
The system can be used across the spectrum for minimally invasive procedures and has been optimized for multi-quadrant surgeries in the areas of gynecology, cardiac, general surgery, thoracic and urology. The benefits of this method can include:
- A shorter hospital stay
- Less blood loss
- Fewer complications
- A faster recovery
- Less pain/less need for medication
- Smaller incisions for minimal scarring
Odessa Regional Medical Center offers various types of robotic-assisted surgeries. In addition to gallbladder removal, its’ surgeons also perform robotic-assisted surgery for abdominal hernias and colon surgeries as well as gynecological and urological procedures.
As with all da Vinci Surgical Systems, the surgeon is 100% in control of the robotic-assisted da Vinci System, which translates his/her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside the patient’s body. The Xi System’s immersive 3D-HD vision system provides surgeons a highly magnified view, virtually extending their eyes and hands into the patient.
Key Features Include:
- A new overhead instrument arm architecture designed to facilitate anatomical access from virtually any position
- A new endoscope digital architecture that creates a simpler, more compact design with improved vision definition and clarity
- An ability to attach the endoscope to any arm, providing flexibility for visualizing the surgical site
- Smaller, thinner arms with newly designed joints that offer a greater range of motion than ever before
- Longer instrument shafts designed to give surgeons greater operative reach
