AdventHealth Redmond recently performed its first robotic surgery case with Bennett Brock, MD, of Harbin Clinic, and the hospital’s surgical team.

Surgeons use the da Vinci Xi robotic surgery system by operating through a few small incisions with a 3D high-definition vision system and wristed instruments that act more efficiently than human hands. The da Vinci Xi has advanced instrumentation, vision and features such as integrated table motion. The system is versatile and flexible with setup automation which promotes operating room efficiency. It also provides multi-quadrant access and is used for a variety of complex procedures.

There are many advantages to robotic-assisted surgery using the da Vinci Xi when compared to laparoscopy or open surgery. Here are just a few:

  • Faster recovery
  • Less blood loss and fewer blood transfusions
  • Less pain and reduced use of pain medication
  • Lower risk of infections and complications
  • Quicker return to normal daily routines
  • Reduced scarring
  • Shorter hospital stay

AdventHealth Redmond’s robotic surgery program currently includes general surgery procedures and will soon include thoracic procedures. In the future, the program will be adding gynecological and urological procedures.

“The introduction of the da Vinci Xi robotic surgery system greatly enhances the quality of our services,” said Mike Murrill, president and CEO of AdventHealth Redmond and the AdventHealth Southeast Region. “I look forward to seeing how this exciting new service line will benefit our community.”
