Everything you need to know about the Da Vinci Xi Robot

The Da Vinci robotic system, developed by the Californian company Intuitive Surgical Inc., was first marketed in 1999. Since then it has evolved to the present day, with the fourth generation of Da Vinci being the most innovative platform.

In it Ruber International Hospital we have the Da Vinci Xi robot, This being the most recent and avant-garde of the da Vinci robotic system. 

Unlike conventional laparoscopic surgery, where the surgeon operates directly with his hands, in this technique the surgeon is at a distance from the patient while performing the surgery. The hand movements performed on the robotic console are transmitted to the robotic arms and from there to the tip of the instruments.

This system provides a high-definition three-dimensional view of the surgical field, which allows greater precision when performing complex surgical interventions and also provides the possibility of accessing anatomical areas that are difficult to access.

The DaVinci® robot-assisted laparoscopy surgery provides precision, minimal invasion and safety in the surgical intervention. All of this translates into a series of benefits for the patient:

  • Less postoperative pain.
  • Lower risk of complications from surgical wounds
  • Lower risk of bleeding during surgery
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Faster recovery

There are multiple surgical procedures that are performed with this minimally invasive technique:

  • In kidney surgery: Partial nephrectomy for treatment of kidney cancer.
  • In prostate surgery: Radical prostatectomy for treatment of prostate cancer.
  • In bladder surgery: Radical cystectomy with urinary diversion through intestinal reconstruction (ileal conduit or neobladder) for the treatment of bladder cancer.

The key to treatment is to individualize each case and offer the best surgical approach for each patient.

The Da Vinci Robot, after 20 years of improvements and updates, has become an essential technology in some minimally invasive interventions.

The guarantee of better recoveries and much smaller scars are two of its great advantages.
