da Vinci Xi Surgical System

The da Vinci® robot features multiple arms that are capable of performing maneuvers and rotations beyond the natural ability of the human hand. At all times, these arms are controlled by the surgeon who sits just a few feet away at the control center. A high-definition camera relays a live video feed of the operative area back to the surgeon in 3-D.

Using the da Vinci Surgical System can reduce surgeon fatigue while enhancing the doctor’s vision, precision, and control. At no point in the procedure does the robot ever make decisions or act independently of the surgeon. Your surgeon remains in complete control from the very beginning to the very end of your robot-assisted procedure.

Salt Lake Regional is an accredited center of excellence in robotic surgery. As the first facility in the state to bear this accreditation, we strive to raise the overall quality of care for patients throughout Utah who may benefit from robot-assisted surgery.
