It’s been about a year since Banner Casa Grande Medical Center received its daVinci Xi Surgical System. It has served the community well, with 433 robotic surgical procedures performed.
“This surgical robot is more than just about having the best technology available,” said Rona Curphy, CEO of Banner Casa Grande Medical Center. “Our main goal is making sure our patients have the best possible surgical outcomes. We really have been pleased that we can provide such a great service to the people who live in our community.”
Since its inception, the daVinci Xi Surgical System has helped surgeons at Banner Casa Grande perform more than 400 hernia repairs and nearly 150 colon resections. Other treatments that have been performed using this technology include spleen and bladder surgical procedures.
The da Vinci Xi system uses four robotic arms that provide surgeons with greater precision, control and access to areas otherwise hard to reach. Surgeons control the movements of the arms, performing complex surgeries with only a few small incisions. The robotic arms include mechanical wrists that bend and rotate in ways like the movements of a human wrist.
