MountainView Hospital’s Las Vegas Institute for Robotic Surgery has acquired its third Xi da Vinci robot, MountainView’s fifth surgical robotic system, allowing surgeons more access to the latest equipment for minimally invasive surgery for patients.
MountainView Hospital has been leading the way in robotic surgery since 2011, and was the first hospital in Las Vegas to offer the Xi system, the latest platform in robotic surgical technology, as a surgical option in 2014.
“Since adding the first advanced robotic surgical system to our suite of OR capabilities, demand from surgeons and patients continues to increase such that additional systems were necessary,” said Jeremy Bradshaw, MountainView Hospital Chief Executive Officer. “The advanced system allows for more complex, minimally invasive surgeries. The addition of a fifth system allows us to meet the growing demand and needs of our community.”
The latest Xi robotic surgical system acquired by MountainView offers broader capabilities than prior generations of the system, and has the ability to be used for thoracic, colorectal, gynecological and general surgery. Minimally invasive surgery allows for a quicker recovery time, less pain, less bleeding and shorter hospitalization.
The latest system also possesses enhanced 3D-HD visualization, giving surgeons a highly magnified view. The system’s overhead arm architecture provides the surgeon anatomical access from virtually any position, simplifying multi-quadrant surgeries. Smaller, thinner arms coupled with longer instrument shafts permit greater range of motion and more flexibility than ever before.
MountainView continues to be the leader in robotic surgery, offering a robust, in-depth training experience for the Graduate Medical Education residents, and an extensive panel of surgeons and pairing them with trained staff and nurses, who are part of dedicated robotic surgical teams. As the latest robotic surgical system joins MountainView’s current ensemble, MountainView Hospital is the first hospital in Nevada to possess a total of five surgical robot systems.
MountainView offers many different types of robotically assisted procedures including ear, nose and throat (ENT), gynecological, fertility and gynecological oncology, urogynecological, urology, thoracic, colorectal and general surgery including single-site gallbladder surgery.
