Second da Vinci Robot Offered to Broaden Surgical Options
03/24/2009

RENOWN HEALTH OFFERS SECOND DA VINCI ROBOT TO BROADEN SURGICAL OPTIONS

RENO, Nev. (March 24, 2009) – Since the demand for the da Vinci® S HD™ Robotic Surgical System has significantly increased due to the technology’s success at Renown Health and procedures have become so popular, Renown recently purchased a second robotic system. The second system allows Renown to broaden its scope of treatments to include surgeries of the lung, pancreas, adrenals and digestive cancers using the physician-guided robot.

Renown Health was the first hospital in northern Nevada with a da Vinci and began using it for various gynecological and prostate cancer procedures in March of 2008. In addition, Renown is still the only hospital between Seattle, Wash. and Long Beach, Calif. to provide heart valve repair using the da Vinci robotic surgical system.

“All the surgeries done with the da Vinci have made a huge difference in the quality of life for my patients this past year,” said Peter Lim, M.D., gynecologic oncology. “These noninvasive procedures are so effective that patients are able to get back to their daily lives quicker and with much less pain.”

With the addition of a second da Vinci system, Renown is looking to meet the healthcare needs of its local community as well as the geographic region throughout northern Nevada and California and southern Idaho and Oregon.

“Having two da Vinci’s will greatly increase our capacity to meet patient and physician demands for the revolutionary technology,” said Linda Ferris, Ph.D., vice president of the Renown Institute for Cancer and lead administrator for the da Vinci® S HD™ Robotic Surgical System. “In just more than one year, we’ve completed approximately 260 da Vinci procedures. Of those, Dr. Lim has completed nearly 135 procedures.”

Renown Regional is recording a large volume of cases that may have otherwise left the region to receive advanced, minimally invasive procedures with the physician-guided robot. Dr. Lim performed the first physician-guided da Vinci procedure in Reno on March 6, 2008.

Patients and physicians who are interested in learning more about the da Vinci Robotic Surgical System at Renown Health should call Linda Ferris, Ph.D., at 775-982-6830 or visit www.renown.org.

Side Bar:
  • For Prostate Cancer Patients:
    The Advisory Board hails the da Vinci Robotic Surgical System as the “gold standard” for treatment of prostate cancer. The technology is superior in many ways to current laparoscopic procedures and offers patients cosmetic and recovery advantages. As a result, prostate cancer patients seek out robotic centers for their surgeries. In a study related to clinical quality and quality of life (i.e. incontinence and sexual function), da Vinci outcomes far exceeded other types of prostate surgeries. Also, more than 80 percent of prostatectomies are being done with the da Vinci surgical system in 15 percent of the hospitals nationwide.
  • For Heart Surgery Patients:
    Conventional heart surgery may require that surgeons cut through the patient’s breastbone and open up the chest with a retractor. With the da Vinci System, only three small incisions are made in the chest minimizing musculoskeletal trauma to the patient. In the coming years, cardiac patients are expected to seek out minimally invasive treatments boosting the need for, and use of, da Vinci.
  • For Gynecologic Patients:
    Physician-guided robotic laparoscopic surgery is a promising new technique for gynecologic patients. The da Vinci surgical robotics system assists women with uterine, ovarian and cervical cancers and other benign pelvic conditions. These patients have experienced significant benefits including less blood loss, fewer complications, less painful recoveries and a shorter length of stay.
About the da Vinci® S HD™ Robotic Surgical System:
The da Vinci S HD Surgical System is powered by state-of-the-art robotic technology. The System allows a surgeon’s hand movements to be scaled, filtered and translated into precise movements of micro-instruments within the operative site. The magnified, three-dimensional view the surgeon experiences enables him/her to perform precise surgery in complex procedures through small surgical incisions.
