Huntington Hospital Acquires Two New da Vinci® Xi™ Surgical Systems for Minimally Invasive Surgery

Huntington Hospital Acquires Two New da Vinci® Xi™ Surgical Systems for Minimally Invasive Surgery
Feb 12 2019

Huntington Hospital is pleased to announce the recent acquisition of two da Vinci Xi Surgical Systems, the next generation in robotic surgical equipment. The da Vinci Xi System was designed with the goal of further advancing the technology used in minimally invasive surgery. The System can be used across a spectrum of minimally invasive surgical procedures and has been optimized for a larger number of surgeries in the areas of gynecology, urology, thoracic, colorectal and general surgery. With this recent acquisition, Huntington Hospital now has a total of three da Vinci Xi Systems – making the hospital one of the largest robotic surgical centers in the region.

By enabling efficient access throughout the abdomen or chest, the da Vinci Xi System expands upon core da Vinci System features, including wristed instruments, 3D-HD visualization, intuitive motion, and an ergonomic design. As with all da Vinci Surgical Systems, the surgeon is 100% in control of the robotic-assisted da Vinci System, which translates hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside the patient’s body. The Xi System’s immersive 3D-HD vision system provides surgeons a highly magnified view, virtually extending their eyes and hands into the patient.

“As a leader in robotic surgery in the San Gabriel Valley for over a decade, our goal is to provide our patients with excellent outcomes and minimal downtime,” said Armen Dikranian, MD, director of robotic surgery, Huntington Hospital. “This expansion of our program demonstrates Huntington Hospital’s commitment to providing our surgeons and our patients cutting-edge technology that allows us to operate with enhanced vision, precision and control so that patients are able to recover sooner and with less postoperative pain.”

Longer instrument shafts are designed to give surgeons greater operative reach. The da Vinci Xi System is an expandable technology platform that is designed to accommodate and seamlessly integrate a range of current technologies, as well as future innovations, in areas such as imaging, advanced instruments and anatomical access.

“We are proud to offer the latest, most advanced da Vinci robotic system to our surgeons at Huntington Hospital,” said Lori J. Morgan, president and CEO, Huntington Hospital. “Our investment in this world-class technology enhances the care we provide to our community and allows our patients to return more quickly to their day-to-day lives.”
