da Vinci® Surgical Systems

The next frontier for minimally invasive surgery

The Robotics Center of North Florida Regional Healthcare is proud to welcome its third surgical robot. Named the ‘Xi’ – it’s the newest and most advanced of the da Vinci® Robotic Systems. The da Vinci Xi is so precise, it takes minimally-invasive surgery to a whole new level.

The Xi joins two Si da Vinci® Surgical Systems in our advanced, high volume robotic surgery program. Our expert physicians use this advanced robotic technology to heal their patients in a better way. It means less pain, smaller incisions, less time in the hospital and less time away from home and work.

3 robots. 23 surgeons. 4,000 procedures. When it comes to the level of quality you can expect, those numbers speak volumes.

CyberKnife

Robotic radiosurgery is precise, painless and non-invasive

CyberKnifeWe are proud to be the first hospital in North Florida to offer the CyberKnife -- revolutionary technology to treat malignant and benign tumors anywhere in the body. This radiosurgery tool allows us to treat patients who are not candidates for surgery, conventional radiation or those who have maxed out their chemotherapy.

Our program is led by Allison Grow, MD, PhD, who trained with the inventor of the CyberKnife. Dr. Grow is passionate about the benefits it offers and the difference it makes for so many cancer patients. The CyberKnife’s ability to irradiate only the tumor while protecting nearby healthy tissue makes it possible to treat lesions that might otherwise be considered inoperable or untreatable.

Robot Assisted Devices

In addition to da Vinci Surgical Systems and the CyberKnife, robot assisted devices are used by physicians and staff at North Florida Regional Medical Center. These devices increase precision and accuracy of surgeons’ work and deliver correspondingly better outcomes for our patients. Examples include the following:

MAKO - RIO

Orthopedic Navigation

Robotic guidance for joint replacement surgery

Robot assisted devices within the orthopedic service line at North Florida Regional Healthcare include MAKOplasty and the ExactechGPS Systems. MAKOplasty is available for patients having partial knee replacement or total hip replacement. ExactechGPS is available for patients having total knee replacement.

While the systems are unique, they both provide real-time visual guidance for advanced accuracy that enables precise alignment and placement of implants. The accuracy made possible by these robot-assisted devices leads to longer-lasting implants.

North Florida Regional is home to a strong and growing orthopedics program, and we are proud to invest in robotic technology that delivers quality care to the patients who rely on us.

Spinal Imaging & Navigation

Robotic guidance for complex spine surgery

O-Arm Imaging Technology Robot assisted devices within the neuroscience service line at North Florida Regional Healthcare include the O-Arm and Stealth Station.

O-Arm Imaging Technology provides multi-dimensional, surgical imaging for complex spine surgeries and real-time, 3-D images in the operating room using robotic technology. StealthStation surgical navigation allows surgeons to track their instruments precisely in relation to patient anatomy. These systems work together to provide real-time visual guidance that may improve clinical outcomes by enabling surgeons to perform more precise procedures.

North Florida Regional is home to a strong and growing neuroscience program that performs 65 percent of all spine surgeries in our community. We are proud to invest in robotic technology that delivers quality care to the patients who rely on us.

LandmarX® Element ENT Image Guidance System (IGS)

The LandmarX® Element ENT Image Guidance System (IGS) provides advanced technology to support the essential IGS functions an ENT surgeon needs for Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (FESS). The surgical platform supports use of special application software and reformats patient-specific CT images acquired before surgery and displays them onscreen from a variety of perspectives. During surgery, the system tracks the position of the instruments in or on the patient anatomy and continuously updates the instrument position on these images. Uninterrupted navigation assists the surgeon in performing precise and accurate procedures.
