Mercy Health – Anderson and Fairfield Hospitals Have the Latest Robotic Technology with Fairfield Hospital First in Butler County to Have It
Mercy Health - Cincinnati, which provides advanced, quality, compassionate care in your neighborhood through its care network, announces that Fairfield Hospital is the first hospital in Butler County to have the da Vinci Xi Surgical System, the newest and most advanced robot used in minimally-invasive surgery, available for patient care. Mercy Health - Anderson Hospital also has the new technology available to serve patients. Surgeons as both hospitals will perform their first procedures using the Xi later this month.
Mercy Health was the first health system in Ohio to acquire the da Vinci Xi when it deployed the surgical system at Mercy Health – St. Vincent Medical Center in Toledo and with the new da Vinci Xi robots at Anderson and Fairfield Hospitals, it has 20% of the robots in Ohio.
Locally in Greater Cincinnati, the new Xi robots supplement the da Vinci Si robots available at Mercy Health – Clermont and West Hospitals and The Jewish Hospital – Mercy Health.
At both Anderson and Fairfield Hospitals, the da Vinci Xi robot will assist surgeons across a broad spectrum of general surgical procedures as well as cardiothoracic, colorectal, gynecological, urological, abdominal, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), head and neck and metabolic and weight loss surgeries.
“As with other minimally-invasive, robotic-assisted procedures, patients benefit from decreased blood loss, lower risk of infection, shorter hospital stays, quicker recovery times and less scarring. The Xi in particular is a great tool for really complex surgical procedures that helps surgeons navigate and operate with the incredible mobility and vision,” said Tom Urban, Mercy Health North Market President and CEO.
East Market President and CEO Jeff Graham notes that the new robot cements the hospital’s commitment to the community.
“If there is a technology available that’s going to improve the health of our community, get patients back to enjoying their lives more quickly, provide safe, high quality outcomes and truly support our Mission to improve the health of the people we serve, Anderson Hospital will offer it.”
Key features include small, thin arms with newly designed joints; long instrument shafts that give surgeons greater operative reach and the most advanced 3D, HD vision system.
