Excelsior Springs Hospital is investing in technology to better serve you.

The da Vinci Xi Surgical System® was designed with the goal of further advancing the technology used in minimally invasive surgery. The da Vinci Xi Surgical System® can be used across a spectrum of minimally invasive and complex surgical procedures with precision and dexterity. In addition to being less invasive than traditional surgery, robotic surgery allows surgeons to see patients’ tissue and organs magnified up to 10 times.

How does this work?

The da Vinci Robot uses a suite of closely grouped stations. A console from which a surgeon manipulates instruments, the robot at the patient’s bedside, and a three-dimensional color monitor. During surgery, a patient lies under the four-armed apparatus. One arm supports a camera that guides the surgeon and the other arms support instruments that have seven planes of motion. The surgeon is 100% in control of the robotic-assisted da Vinci System®.

What are the benefits?

• Fewer complications
• Less pain and blood loss
• A shorter hospital stay
• A faster recovery
• Less need for narcotic pain medicine
• Smaller incisions with minimal scarring

We are excited to bring this technology to Excelsior Springs and our surrounding communities. This is one example on how we strive to provide the highest quality of healthcare to our patients.
