da Vinci® Xi™ Robotic Surgery System

San Juan Regional Medical Center offers minimally-invasive robotic assisted surgeries with the da Vinci Xi Robotic Surgery System. The da Vinci integrates innovative technology with a precision surgical team to provide continued excellent patient outcomes.

What to expect during surgery

During robotic-assisted surgery, the surgeon is 100 percent in control of the da Vinci System, which translates the surgeon’s hand movements into smaller, more precise movements.  The Xi System’s immersive 3D-HD vision system provides surgeons a highly magnified view, virtually extending their eyes and hands into the patient.
