Robotic Surgical Services

HSHS St. Elizabeth's Hospital introduces the da Vinci® Xi™ Surgical System. The da Vinci® Xi™ Surgical System can be used across a spectrum of minimally invasive surgical procedures and has been optimized for multi-quadrant surgeries in the areas of gynecology, urology, thoracic, cardiac and general surgery. We are truly thrilled to be a leader in this field and look forward to continue bringing Southwestern Illinois minimally invasive surgical options.

With the da Vinci Surgical System with Firefly Technology, surgeons operate through just a few small incisions. The da Vinci System features a magnified 3D high-definition vision system and tiny wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human hand. As a result, da Vinci enables your surgeon to operate with enhanced vision, precision and control. This contributes to less pain, reduced length of stay, reduced blood loss and reduced risk of complication and infection.

The da Vinci System represents the latest in surgical and robotics technologies. Your surgeon is 100% in control of the da Vinci System at all times. The da Vinci technology translates your surgeon’s hand movements into smaller, precise movements of tiny instruments inside your body.

Firefly™ Fluorescence Imaging: This imaging system allows your surgeon to identify vessels and tissue that otherwise couldn’t be seen by the human eye. Firefly combines a special video camera and a dye that binds to proteins to make those vessels and tissue visible during minimally invasive surgical procedures using the da Vinci.

Currently, St. Elizabeth’s offers Robotic Surgery for general, gynecologic and urologic cases.
