Robotic-Assisted Surgery

Methodist Hospitals is equipped with da Vinci Xi surgical system.

Offering robotic-assisted surgery since 2012, Methodist Hospitals is equipped with da Vinci Xi surgical system, which is today’s most sophisticated technology with advanced instrumentation and vision, to further expand its menu of minimally invasive surgical procedures.

The da Vinci Xi System is designed to further advance minimally invasive surgery. This revolutionary technology helps surgeons to treat more conditions than previous da Vinci systems across a wide range of minimally invasive surgical procedures, including:

Bariatric Surgery

Cardiac and Thoracic Surgery

General Surgeries
• Acid Reflux (GERD) surgery
• Benign colorectal patient procedures
• Gall bladder disease
• Hernia repair
• Prostate surgery

Gynecological Surgeries
• Benign hysterectomy
• Endometriosis resection
• Hysterectomy for cancer
• Pelvic organ prolapse surgery
• Uterine fibroid surgery

Urology Surgeries
• Prostatectomy
• Pyeloplasty
• Partial Nephrectomy
• Sacrocolopexy

Cancer Surgeries
• Colorectal cancer
• Kidney cancer
• Lung cancer
• Pancreatic cancer

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.

While surgeons are benefiting from enhanced functionality, precision and comfort, their patients reap the greatest benefits from the da Vinci surgical system. Most patients spend shorter time in the hospital and experience less post-operative pain. In addition to these two major benefits, minimally invasive surgery with the da Vinci Xi can also mean:

• Smaller incisions
• Faster recovery
• Less blood loss and fewer blood transfusions
• Reduced use of pain medication
• Lower risk of infections and complications
• Quicker return to normal daily routines
