CHRISTUS Health Unveils New Advanced Robotic Surgery

By Vaseline May30,2024

IRVING, Texas, May 30, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CHRISTUS Health announced today that it has purchased 15 new advanced robotic surgical systems for select hospitals in the nonprofit Catholic health care system.

“Robotic surgery technologies are rapidly evolving into the gold standard of care for a variety of surgical needs,” said Dr. Sam Bagchi, executive vice president and chief clinical officer at CHRISTUS Health. “I am excited about our leadership in transforming care for our patients as we work to create a great healthcare experience for our surgeons at CHRISTUS Health.”

CHRISTUS Health is committed to providing patients with innovative and compassionate healthcare. The new technology is part of CHRISTUS Health’s high-reliability strategy to continually improve the consistency and effectiveness of the care the company is privileged to provide to the communities it serves.

The Intuitive da Vinci 5 Surgical System is used for minimally invasive procedures. It has robotic arms that surgeons fully control, translating their hand movements into smaller, more precise movements using small instruments. The system’s immersive vision system also provides surgeons with a highly magnified view, virtually extending their eyes and hands during surgery.

“The device and minimally invasive approach allow our patients to undergo the necessary procedures with less recovery time and achieve optimal results,” said Dr. Doug Stoddard, director of robotic surgery at CHRISTUS Health. “Our patients may also experience less pain and scarring and less risk of infection.”

The new technology will be used for urology, gynaecology, thoracic and general surgeries.
Procedures using this new robotic technology are now being planned and executed. For more information, visit General Surgery | Minimally invasive surgery | CHRIST Health.
