Phoenixville Hospital recently acquired the da Vinci X surgical system — the third surgical robot available at the hospital. Staff will be able to use the robotic system to perform minimally invasive surgery.

PHOENIXVILLE — Phoenixville Hospital recently added the da Vinci X Surgical System to its services.

The da Vinci X Surgical System is a proven robotic-assisted surgical technology that helps enable our surgeons to perform minimally invasive surgery with an advanced set of instruments and a 3D high-definition view of the surgical area. The surgeon is 100% in control of the robotic-assisted da Vinci Surgical System, which translates his/her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside the patient’s body.

The da Vinci X Surgical System is used for surgical procedures in the lower abdomen such as prostatectomy, partial nephrectomy, hysterectomy, pelvic organ prolapse, and hernia repair.

The da Vinci robotic surgery is a less invasive technique and offers several potential benefits, including a shorter hospital stay, less blood loss, fewer complications, less need for narcotic pain medicine, a faster recovery, and smaller incisions associated with minimal scarring.

“Bringing a minimally invasive surgical option for general surgery procedures to the Southeastern community benefits our patients by making surgeries safer with a faster recovery and less pain,” said Phoenixville Hospital President and CEO Steve Tullman.
