Surgeons at OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center have a new tool to increase precision, dexterity, and efficiency in the operating room.
The hospital introduced the da Vinci Si Surgical System on Wednesday. The system features high definition 3D views of the operative field with up to 10x magnification, optional dual console to allow a second surgeon to assist, increased visual clarity of tissue and anatomy, surgical dexterity and precision greater than the human hand, and a simplified user interface to enhance efficiency.
The tool allows surgeons to turn complex surgeries into minimally invasive procedures. It can be used for procedures like prostatectomies, hysterectomies, myomectomies, coronary artery bypasses, mitral valve repairs, and colorectal surgeries.
