da Vinci Xi Surgical and Ion Systems

Live Remarkable with less invasive procedures

Holy Cross Health in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, offers the da Vinci Xi and  Ion - both Intuitive surgical systems - as effective, minimally invasive alternatives to open surgery, laparoscopy and lung biopsies.

Robotic-assisted surgery allows surgeons to perform complex procedures using tiny incisions only 8 mm long. The surgeon sits at a console operating four robotic arms, one of which contains a camera, and views the procedure through binocular-like lenses that provide a highly magnified, 3-D view. As the surgeon moves the controls, the system translates the finger movements into precise manipulation of miniaturized instruments and eliminates any natural hand tremors.

Benefits of the da Vinci may include:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Fewer complications
  • Less scarring
  • A shorter hospital stay
  • A faster return to normal daily activities
