OSU Medical Center Acquires Da Vinci® Xi™ Surgical System

OSU Medical Center is pleased to announce the recent acquisition of the da Vinci Xi Surgical System, the next generation in robotic surgical equipment. The da Vinci Xi 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.

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 his/her 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.

“Our goal is to provide our patients with excellent outcomes and minimal downtime,” said Dr. Michael Thomas, general surgeon at OSU Medical Center. “This technology demonstrates OSU Medical Center’s commitment to providing our surgeons, residents and our patient’s 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.”
