Central Florida Regional Hospital Expands Robot-assisted Surgery Capabilities
SANFORD, Fla. (April 16, 2019) – Central Florida Regional Hospital recently expanded its surgery offerings with the addition of the da Vinci Xi robotic surgical system, an advanced tool for minimally invasive surgery. This is the second robot the hospital has added since 2013, allowing for increased patient volume in complex procedures.
Robot-assisted surgery is one of the most effective surgical treatments available, giving patients an alternative to traditional and laparoscopic procedures. Surgeons can perform complex and delicate procedures through small incisions, allowing patients to heal faster and with fewer post-operative complications and less pain. With the assistance of this cutting-edge technology, Central Florida Regional Hospital physicians have an increased range of motion and enhanced visuals during general, gynecological, urological and thoracic surgery.
“At Central Florida Regional Hospital, providing the best patient care and surgical outcomes are our priority,” said Trey Abshier, CEO of Central Florida Regional Hospital. “By expanding our innovative robotics program, we’re able to increase the number of patients we serve.”
Patients should consult with their physicians to learn if they are candidates for robotic-assisted surgery.
