Parma Hospital announces the arrival of the latest version of robotic surgery on the da Vinci Surgical Platform:
the da Vinci Si
Parma Community General Hospital is pleased to introduce the da Vinci® Si™ Surgical System to our operating room and our community. This is significant because of the value it offers our surgical staff and those in the region we serve.
The da Vinci® Si™ has several unique features designed to provide additional clinical benefits and efficiency in the operating room compared to prior generations of this technology, which translates to improved patient outcomes. Examples of these features include:
Enhanced 3D, high-definition (HD) vision of operative field with up to 10x magnification
Superior visual clarity of tissue and anatomy
Surgical dexterity and precision far greater than even the human hand
Updated and simplified user interface
New ergonomic settings for greater surgeon comfort
These enhancements provide surgeons at Parma Hospital with unparalleled 3D HD vision, precision and dexterity that facilitate a minimally invasive approach for many complex surgical procedures.
“We believe that the features of the da Vinci® Si™ Surgical System will help us provide the best possible clinical outcomes and is a testament of our commitment to provide our community access to the latest advancements in minimally invasive surgery,” said Carson Wong, MD, FRCSC, FACS, medical director, Center for Minimally Invasive and Robotic Surgery at Parma Community General Hospital. “This allows us to provide the type of care one would expect from a large academic medical center, in a more personalized setting.”
da Vinci’s advanced level of technology takes surgery beyond the limits of the human hand. This acquisition complements our goal of extending minimally invasive surgery to the broadest possible base of patients. It can be used for a multitude of disciplines, including urology, gynecology, general surgery and bariatric surgery.
“Parma Hospital begins offering robotic-assisted surgery to our patients with the latest robot and superior 3D image capability,” said Parma Hospital President & CEO Terry Deis. “We are thrilled to have a nationally known surgeon who has had experience launching previous, successful robotic surgery programs, leading our venture. This is a great benefit to our patients and community.”
