Beaumont is the first health system in Michigan to use the new Xi robotic-assisted surgical system. Surgeons performed the first procedure July 16, 2014 at Beaumont Hospital, Troy. The system is also available at Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak.
Approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in April 2014, the Xi robotic-assisted surgical system has a wider range of applications than previous generations of da Vinci systems.
The acquisition of two Xi robotic systems demonstrates Beaumont’s commitment to treating its patients with the most advanced minimally invasive surgical technology.
The new Xi system provides surgeons the capability to perform more complex procedures throughout the abdomen and chest. This includes thoracic, urologic, gynecologic, colorectal, liver and general surgeries. The system also provides 3D-HD vision, giving surgeons a highly magnified view. Its instruments provide the surgeon greater reach and also increases dexterity and precision.
Compared to traditional open surgeries, minimally invasive procedures like those performed with a robotically-assisted system, use smaller, keyhole-like incisions. Patients benefit with faster recovery times, less pain/scarring, lower blood loss and a shorter hospital stay.
Features of the new Xi robotic system include:
