About Robotic Surgery

NorthBay Healthcare, the first program in the area to invest in surgical robotics, recently acquired the latest da Vinci Xi system which allows surgeons to perform complex and delicate procedures with exceptional precision. The da Vinci Xi robotic surgical system, includes a camera arm and mechanical arms with surgical instruments attached to them. The surgeon controls the arms while seated at a computer console near the operating table while the rest of the surgical team is at the patient’s bedside.

The robotic system uses 3D high-definition technology; the surgeon’s movements on the console are translated into very precise movements of the robotic arms. This amazing technology provides your surgeon with a better view of the operating field, better access to the surgical site and greater dexterity which means a faster recovery and fewer complications for patients.
