Leading the Way in Robotic Thoracic Surgery

The Frank E. & Mary D. Walsh Robotic Surgery Program at Jupiter Medical Center is one of the most comprehensive programs in the region, offering leading technology with the da Vinci® Xi™ Surgical System. The introduction of the Xi™ system established Jupiter Medical Center as one of the 1st facilities in the world to possess this technology and over the past several years we have acquired a second and third system to further enhance our robotic surgery capabilities. If thoracic surgery is recommended to treat lung cancer or another thoracic condition, you may be a candidate for the minimally invasive da Vinci® surgery.

The da Vinci® Xi is a sophisticated robotic platform designed to enable complex surgery using a minimally invasive approach. The da Vinci Xi™ consists of an ergonomic surgeon’s console, a patient-side cart with four interactive robotic arms, a high-performance 3D/HD vision system and proprietary EndoWrist® instruments with Intuitive® motion. During robotic surgery, the surgeon sits at the system console next to the patient, and has a 3D view inside the patient’s body while controlling the robot’s four arms in real time.

The system translates the surgeon’s hand, wrist and finger actions into precise movements with the da Vinci’s miniaturized instruments. Patients realize tremendous benefit with minimally invasive robotic surgery, including fewer complications, less blood loss, lower risk of infection, shorter hospital stay, less pain, and faster return to normal quality of life. “Our investment in the most technologically advanced surgical equipment available, the da Vinci® Xi™ , speaks to our commitment to transform patient care,” says Dr. Lee, “and our desire to build a hopeful future for cancer care in South Florida.”
