Latest Generation da Vinci Xi Robotic Surgical System at HYGEIA

25 September 2017

HYGEIA updated yet again the quality services it provides to its patients with the upgrade of its robotic surgical systems. A latest generation da Vinci Xi system has just been installed in the operating rooms.

Over the last few years robotic surgery has been developing by leaps and bounds in the field of urology, with multiple benefits to patients, especially in prostate procedures. It also assists in performing a wide range of general surgery, bariatric, gynecological and cardiac surgery procedures.

The da Vinci Xi robotic system ensures the smallest possible incision, with added benefits for the patient, such as minimal postoperative pain and complications, significantly shorter hospitalization, faster recovery and a perfect aesthetic result. Robotic surgery translates into shorter anesthesia time and almost no blood loss, both of which ensure the fastest possible patient recovery.

Through the robotic surgery system, all procedures are performed remotely with the least possible intervention in the patient’s body. The da Vinci Xi system offers the highest possible definition of the surgical field (crystal clear), while the arms are smaller and thinner, providing greater range from the previous model. This offers surgeons the possibility of performing even more minimally invasive complex surgical procedures with even greater safety.

Since 2007, when the first robotic system was installed at HYGEIA, a great number of innovative robotic procedures have been performed on site, many of which were a first for Greece. The large number of cases coupled with the top quality of services guaranteed by Joint Commission International (JCI) ensure the best possible result for patients.

Commenting on the installation of the new da Vinci Xi system, the HYGEIA Group CEO, Mr Andreas Kartapanis noted, “HYGEIA continues to invest in state-of-the-art technology, remaining true to its vision to provide top-level services, while at the same time showing a deep sense of compassion for people and society in general.”
