Premier Health Expands Robotic Surgery Options with Newest Generation Equipment

DAYTON, OHIO (January 16, 2015) – Robotic surgery has grown in precision and availability at Premier Health. The health care system has added the newest generation of equipment, which expands surgical offerings. 

Robotic surgery has been offered at Premier Health hospitals since 2006, but the da Vinci Xi System boasts of broader capabilities than prior generations of the da Vinci technology. The newer machine can be used across a wider spectrum of minimally-invasive surgical procedures, and has been optimized for complex, multi-quadrant surgeries, including surgical cardiac, thoracic, urology, gynecology, and general surgery.

“Robotic navigation enhances our physicians’ surgical reach to go right to the source of the problem. We are pleased to be a leader in this field, as we continue to bring minimally invasive surgical options to the Dayton area,” says Anita Adams, vice president of operations at Good Samaritan Hospital (closed in 2018).

The da Vinci Surgical System is a tool that utilizes advanced robotic, computer, and optical technologies to assist surgeons. Robotic surgery provides patients with a minimally-invasive alternative to open, or invasive, surgery, which in many cases reduces the complications associated with such procedures. The advanced da Vinci model does not act on its own, so its movements are controlled by the surgeon. The da Vinci Xi Surgical System has a 3D, high-definition (3D-HD) vision system, along with special instruments and computer software that allow the surgeon to operate with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity, and control. The 3D-HD image is highly magnified, allowing the surgeon a close-up view of the surgical area. The da Vinci Xi instruments have mechanical wrists that bend and rotate to mimic the movements of the human wrist – allowing the surgeon to make small, precise movements inside the body.

“Premier Health was the first health system to bring robotic surgery technology to the Dayton region”, says Robert Bowman, vice president of operations for Miami Valley Hospital. “Now we are excited to offer our patients this advanced technology to use surgically in treating their problems and often have a quicker recovery and a shorter hospital stay.”

Features on the newer equipment:

  • Overhead instrument arm architecture, designed to facilitate anatomical access from virtually any position. 
  • Endoscope digital architecture that creates a simpler, more compact design, with improved visual definition and clarity. 
  • An ability to attach the endoscope to any arm, providing flexibility for visualizing the surgical site. 
  • Smaller, thinner arms, with newly designed joints that offer a greater range of motion.
  • Longer instrument shafts, designed to give surgeons greater operative reach.

In many cases, the benefits of robotically-assisted, minimally-invasive surgery are

  • Reduced pain, due to a port-only approach (smaller incision)
  • Less blood loss
  • Shorter length of hospital stay
  • Reduced post-operative complications and recovery
  • Lower risk of wound infections

It is based on patient activity (how many patients are being treated and the severity of their injuries) within the last hour, and it is subject to change at any moment. If you are experiencing an emergency, call 911.
