Surgical Services Upgrades da Vinci Robot

The new da Vinci Xi robot in surgical services at Columbus Regional Hospital.

Surgical Services has completed an upgrade from the Intuitive Surgical da Vinci Si Robot (purchased in 2012) to the da Vinci Xi technology.

Since 2012, CRH has completed over 1,100 robotic procedures with the da Vinci technology for gynecology, urology, and general surgery specialties.

Benefits of this new system include:

  • Streamlined setup and positioning
  • Optimized patient-side access
  • Increased range of instrument motion
  • Advanced instrumentation
  • Enhanced visualization

All of these benefits combine for a broader, more advanced CRH robotic procedural offering.

Below, Dr. George Albers of Southern Indiana OB/GYN discusses the advantages of robotic surgery in a video from 2012.
