GREENBRAE, CA, September 3, 2020—MarinHealth announced today that it has acquired the da Vinci Xi Surgical System, which was designed with the goal of further advancing the technology used in minimally invasive surgery. The System, the first of its kind in Marin county, 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.
“This new robot allows MarinHealth to expand our robotic surgery program to meet the growing needs of our community and brings with it added treatment options,” said Dr. James Yu, Medical Director of Robotic & Genitourinary Oncology Services at MarinHealth Medical Center. “The System has a number of advanced new features that only a few hospitals in the country have and MarinHealth is proud to be a leader in the field.”
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 percent 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 with a highly magnified view, virtually extending their eyes and hands into the patient.
