About the da Vinci Xi Robot

The da Vinci Xi is a cutting edge system that puts our surgeons at the controls of a state-of-the-art robotic platform. The robot has tiny instruments and 3D cameras mounted on robotic arms, allowing us to do deeper surgeries with a higher degree of precision.

Our goal is simple - to provide better outcomes for patients. The da Vinci robot helps because it allows more procedures to be done using “minimally invasive” techniques - often resulting in less pain and quicker recovery times. 

During robotic surgery, the robot is controlled by an experienced CHA surgeon. But unlike traditional open surgery or laparoscopy (keyhole) surgery, the surgeon can use smaller holes, get a better view inside your body and have more precise control of the instruments.

Why this matters

"While surgery is more effective and safer than at any time in history, it remains a complicated endeavor and has tremendous variation - from surgeon to surgeon and patient to patient. Surgical robots help control the variables, making your surgery more uniform and precise.

The da Vinci Xi brings together the art and science of surgery. This means better, more reliable outcomes for a growing number of procedures." 

- Dr. Siva Vithinanthan, CHA Chief of Surgery
