Holy Redeemer Hospital Expands Surgical Capabilities Through Acquisition of the New da Vinci® Xi™ Surgical System

Holy Redeemer Hospital now provides minimally invasive surgical options for gynecologic, urologic, thoracic, cardiac, and general surgical procedures. A highly desirable option for many patients, this type of procedure often results in minimal to no scarring and faster recovery times.

Redeemer Health is able to offer this capability through its recent acquisition of the da Vinci® Xi™ Surgical System, a sophisticated structure that extends the capabilities of a surgeon’s eyes and hands. The System provides surgeons with a view of a surgical area that is magnified 10 times to what the human eye sees. Through small incisions and with the assistance of this 3D-HD magnification, surgeons use tiny, wristed instruments that move like a human hand, but with far greater motion and precision.

“It is vital to provide patients with as many treatment options as possible to make sure they receive care specifically tailored to their needs,” says Catherine Cahill, DO, General Surgeon with Redeemer Health Surgical Associates and the Division Chief of General Surgery and Chair of Robotics Program, Holy Redeemer Hospital. “With the da Vinci robot, we now can provide patients with close-to-home, robotic-assisted surgical care allowing our patients to return to their daily lives more quickly and with less narcotic pain medication following a procedure."
