Columbus Community Hospital’s surgical services unit uses the da Vinci® Xi™ robotic system to provide a wide variety of minimally invasive surgeries, including the following:
- Inguinal hernia repair.
- Umbilical hernia repair.
- Ventral/incisional hernia repair.
- Cholecystectomy (gallbladder).
- Colon resection.
- Nissan fundoplication (stomach surgery for reflux).
- Oophorectomy (ovaries).
- Tubal ligation.
- Bladder repair/suspension.
- Nephrectomy (kidneys).
- Bladder surgery.
This special piece of technology allows for greater capabilities in the operating room, while also providing minimally invasive surgery for patients.
The da Vinci® Xi™ robotic system features 3D imaging of the surgical area with enhanced dexterity for greater precision by surgeons. It has three components: a surgeon console, a robot with four working arms and a vision cart.
The surgeon sits at the console to see a magnified view of the operating field and uses special controls to move the instruments attached to the robot during surgery.
The robot is positioned next to the patient in the operating room and holds the camera and instruments, while the surgeon controls it from the console. A vision cart makes communication between the components possible and supports the 3D high-definition vision system.
