Robot System is the Latest in Minimally Invasive Urologic and ENT Surgeries

The Las Vegas Institute for Robotic Surgery at MountainView Hospital is the first in Nevada and HCA Healthcare to acquire the innovative single port (SP) robotic surgery system, making it MountainView's sixth surgical robotic system. The new robotic system is scheduled to be used in its first surgical case today, Monday, April 8.

MountainView Hospital has been leading the way in robotic surgery since 2011. Since that time it has grown to multiple surgical platforms offering the latest in robotic surgical technology and pioneered advanced robotic procedures unique to Nevada, as well as the education of physicians from across the United States.

The SP is the latest robotic-assisted technology used by surgeons to perform minimally invasive ear, nose and throat (ENT) and urologic surgical procedures, including prostate and kidney cancer. The system is designed to enable surgeons deep and narrow access into body tissue, and enter the body through a small, single incision to perform more complex procedures.

"To be the first hospital in Nevada to acquire this technologically advanced robotic surgical system strongly demonstrates our dedication to improve surgery outcomes and positively impact patients' lives." said Jeremy Bradshaw, MountainView Hospital Chief Executive Officer. "Since adding the first advanced robotic surgical system to our OR, demand from surgeons and patients continues to increase such that additional systems were necessary. The advanced system allows for more complex, minimally invasive surgeries."

MountainView continues to be the leader in robotic surgery, offering an extensive panel of surgeons and pairing them with trained staff and nurses, who are part of dedicated robotic surgical teams.

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.
