Robotic-assisted surgery usually leads to shorter hospital stays, faster recovery and minimized complications and functions as a safe platform for teaching surgical residents. UAB has three of the da Vinci Si surgical systems, a next-generation robot that retains and builds on the core technology at the heart of the existing da Vinci and da Vinci S systems. UAB also has one of the newest Xi systems and will receive delivery of another this month. Da Vinci Xi is the next frontier for minimally invasive surgery.Listen as Dr. Jamie Cannon discusses surgery for colorectal cancer using the da Vinci Si surgical system.
