Sebastian River Medical Center Offers the Latest in Surgical Advances

New Operating Rooms and New Technology

(Sebastian, FL July 31, 2020) – Sebastian River Medical Center’s new operating rooms offer the latest in surgical technology with ultra-high definition monitors enhancing physician views of surgical sites, the da Vinci™ Xi Surgical System and Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Technology.

The da Vinci™ Xi system has broader capabilities than prior da Vinci™ generations. It can be used across a wide spectrum of minimally invasive surgical procedures and has been optimized for complex, multi-quadrant surgeries.  Da Vinci™ surgical systems offer patients a minimally invasive alternative to open surgery that reduces many of the costs and complications associated with open procedures. The new da Vinci™ is designed with the goal of further advancing the technology used in minimally invasive surgery for complex diseases and conditions. It can be used in a variety of surgical procedures including bariatric, gynecological, urological, and general surgery. This leading second-generation robotic technology enables surgeons to operate through single incision, minimizing scarring and patients may experience shorter recovery time and less pain. 

Mako is robotic assisted technology used in joint replacement surgeries.  Surgeons can view a comprehensive, 3D, virtual model of the patient’s specified anatomy that is developed from a CT scan prior to surgery.   The virtual model is loaded into the Mako system’s software and a pre-operative plan is developed. Mako guides the surgeon within the pre-defined boundaries, allowing for a more accurate placement and reducing the risk of complications. The surgeon is in control of the robot during surgery and can make necessary adjustments as needed.    As with most robotic-assisted surgical technology, many patients may have a quicker recovery time and less pain.
