Las Colinas Medical Center is pleased to introduce the most advanced and state-of-the art robotic surgical technology available to patients today. As an expansion of the minimally invasive procedures already offered, Las Colinas Medical Center has unveiled the new da Vinci Si Surgical system.
“This is an exciting time for our hospital and community”, said Daniela Decell, CEO, Las Colinas Medical Center. “Robot-assisted surgery offers our patients a less invasive surgical option while also minimizing recovery time. Due to the inherent value proposition for all hospital stakeholders, we knew it was the right thing to do.” The robotic system enhances the surgeons’ skills with computer technology, enabling them to see vital anatomical structures more clearly and perform surgical procedures more precisely.
The technology extends the surgeon’s capabilities by providing a three dimensional view of the operating field and improving access to the surgical site through small instrument “ports” that eliminate the need for large incisions. The system also provides full freedom of movement at its instrument tips, allowing precise operation in a closed chest, abdomen or pelvis.
“By enhancing surgical capability through this advanced technology, patients are returning to active, productive lives in an expedited fashion” said Dr. Ronney Stadler, colorectal surgeon with Las Colinas Medical Center. “Patients who have experienced robotic surgery have consistently reported high satisfaction with the procedure.” The da Vinci Si has several unique features designed to provide additional clinical benefits and efficiency in the operating room, many of which translate to patient benefits. Here are a few features of the da Vinci Si:
· Enhanced 3D, high-definition vision of operative field with up to 10x
· New optional dual console allows second surgeon to provide assistance
· Superior visual clarity of tissue and anatomy
· Surgical dexterity and precision far greater than even the human hand
· Updated and simplified user interface to enhance OR efficiency
· New ergonomic settings for greater surgeon comfort
“This technology takes surgery beyond the limits of the human hand. This is the future of medicine and it’s exciting to know we can offer it here in Las Colinas,” said Dr. Phil Swanson, Chair of Surgery with Las Colinas Medical Center.
This acquisition complements Las Colinas Medical Center’s goals of extending minimally invasive surgery to the broadest possible base of patients. This technology can be utilized in a multitude of specialties including the following: Gynecology, general surgery, colo-rectal surgery, cardiovascular surgery, ENT and urology.
Founded in 1997, our hospital has been serving a growing community for more than 15 years. We are a full-service 100-bed, acute care facility located in Irving, TX. While notably recognized for Women’s Services, Las Colinas Medical Center offers a full range of services including the following: Cardiovascular (Chest Pain Accredited), orthopedic/spine, primary stroke, and general surgery.
