Fort Walton Beach Medical Center Announces Recent Acquisition of da Vinci Xi
Fort Walton Beach Medical Center (FWBMC), announced Monday its newest acquisition of the da Vinci Xi Robotic Surgical System. The XI is the most advanced robotic surgical system available. This new robotic surgical system can be used across a spectrum of minimally invasive surgical procedures and has been optimized for multi-quadrant surgeries in the areas of gynecology, urology, thoracic, cardiac and general surgery. “We are truly thrilled to be a leader in this field and look forward to continue bringing the area minimally invasive surgical options”, stated Mitch Mongell, CEO of Fort Walton Beach Medical Center.
By enabling efficient access throughout the abdomen or chest, the da Vinci Xi System expands upon core system’s features, including wristed instruments, 3D-HD visualization, intuitive motion, and an ergonomic design. As with all robotic surgical systems, the surgeon is 100% in control of this new robotic-assisted system, which translates his/her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside the patient’s body. The system’s immersive 3D-HD vision system provides surgeons a highly magnified view, virtually extending their eyes and hands into the patient.
Key Features Include:
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.
- A new overhead instrument arm architecture designed to facilitate anatomical access from virtually any position.
- A new endoscope digital architecture that creates a simpler, more compact design with improved vision definition and clarity.
- An ability to attach the endoscope to any arm, providing flexibility for visualizing the surgical site.
- Smaller, thinner arms with newly designed joints that offer a greater range of motion than ever before.
- Longer instrument shafts designed to give surgeons greater operative reach.
