UC Health West Chester Hospital Announces the Arrival of the Newest Technology in Surgery Today: da Vinci® Si™ Surgical System

West Chester, Ohio – UC Health West Chester Hospital is pleased to introduce the da Vinci® Si Surgical System to our operating room and to our community. This is a significant arrival 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, many of which translate to patient benefits. Here are a few features of the da Vinci Si:

  • Enhanced 3D, high-definition 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 to enhance OR efficiency
  • New ergonomic settings for greater surgeon comfort

Together, these technological advancements provide our surgeons with unparalleled precision, dexterity and control that enable a minimally invasive approach for many complex surgical procedures. Commenting on the introduction of the da Vinci Si System, President and Chief Executive Officer Kevin Joseph, MD stated, “The new da Vinci SiSystem will help us to provide the best possible outcomes for our surgical patients and is further proof of our commitment to provide our community with access to the latest medical advancements.”

“da Vinci’s advanced level of technology takes surgery beyond the limits of the human hand and allows our patients the opportunity to recover from such procedures at an accelerated rate. The addition of this new surgical system complements our goal of extending minimally invasive surgery to the broadest possible base of patients,” stated Joseph.

The da Vinci Si surgical system can be used for a multitude of procedures, including, but not limited to: prostatectomy, hysterectomy, myomectomy, coronary artery bypass, mitral valve repair and colorectal surgery.

West Chester Hospital will be hosting an open house reception, welcoming the addition of the new daVinci robot, in the main lobby of the hospital on Thursday May 5th, from 12 – 4 p.m.  Members of the community are invited to join West Chester Hospital employees at the event to learn more about the new surgical system and to have the opportunity to actually use the robot to complete a series of challenges.  Light refreshments will be served.
