New da Vinci Xi Expands Minimally Invasive Procedures

A da Vinci Xi robot was recently acquired by The Miriam Hospital, which was the first hospital in Rhode Island and Southeastern New England to acquire a da Vinci surgical system in 2006. Surgeons with the hospital’s Minimally Invasive Urology Institute use a da Vinci robot for an array of routine and complex kidney, bladder, and prostate operations. The Miriam’s urologic program was recently ranked in the top 2 percent in the nation by U.S. News & World Report. The addition of this second robot will allow the hospital and its surgeons to substantially increase the volume of robot-assisted cases, not only for urologic procedures, but for colorectal cases and general surgery as well.
