Sarasota Memorial’s robotic surgery suites equip Sarasota’s minimally invasive surgeons with the latest tools and technology for robotic surgery and single incision surgery. The da Vinci® Surgical System enables surgeons to perform operations through a few small incisions – as little as 1/3 of an inch – surgeons insert the cameras and specialized instruments through narrow tubes, or access ports, and maneuver them manually or by remote controls outside the body while viewing real-time images the camera sends out to a video monitor in the operating or procedure room.
The robotic surgery suites at Sarasota Memorial Hospital are equipped with Intuitive Surgical’s most advanced da Vinci robotic surgical systems – the da Vinci-S, Si and Xi, optimized for complex cancers and conditions. The magnified vision system that gives surgeons a 3D HD view inside the patient’s body with wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human hand.
Interactive navigational kiosks driven by LogicJunction are available at the hospital entrances and will provide directions to several presentations taking place this month; the full schedule is available here.
