Navi Mumbai, 2 April 2023: Apollo Cancer Centres, Navi Mumbai launched the fourth-generation advanced Da Vinci Xi Robotic System today. The launch of the Da Vinci Xi was the highlight of the Robotic Colorectal Cancer Symposium organized with the Association of Colon and Rectal Surgeons of India (ACRSI). The Da Vinci Xi Robotic system represents the latest in surgical and robotic technologies offering advanced instrumentation, vision, and features such as integrated table motion, its versatility and flexibility promote efficiency in the operating room.
Commenting on the launch of the advanced Da Vinci Xi Robotic Surgical system, Mr. Santosh Marathe, Regional CEO – Western Region, Apollo Hospitals, said, “We are proud to launch the advanced Da Vinci Xi Robotic System that is a game-changer in the field of robotic surgery. We are confident that it will revolutionize clinical outcomes for patients who require complex surgeries. This is in line with our commitment to providing our patients with the most advanced healthcare technologies and services. The Da Vinci Xi Robotic system can be used in the field of colorectal surgeries, urology, oncology, gynaecology, thoracic, cardiology, paediatric and gastro-intestinal surgeries, kidney transplants and in liver transplantation. Apollo Hospitals will be investing significant efforts in training of surgeons and clinical talents for the program with equivalent investments for post-operative and rehab care.”
Dr. Anil D'Cruz, Director of Oncology, Consultant Surgical Oncology, Apollo Hospitals, Navi Mumbai, said, “The robotic procedures are a safe and effective alternative to open and laparoscopic surgeries, offering particular advantages in technically challenging situations. Multi-quadrant operations, such as colorectal surgeries have unique challenges during robot-assisted surgery and it is here that the Da Vinci Xi Robotic system provides access to all quadrants of the abdomen with several advantages including better vision, better ergonomics, smaller incisions, and reduced risk of infection. It enables surgeons to perform complex surgical procedures with greater accuracy, less blood loss, and faster recovery times for patients. Robotic surgery offers important advantages over laparoscopy or open surgery including improved ergonomics and 3D optics for the surgeon. It decreases the probability of perioperative mortality and wound infections, and raises overall survival’’.
Dr Amol Kumar Patil, Senior Consultant-Urology, Uro-Oncology, Kidney Transplant & Robotic Surgery, Apollo Hospitals, Navi Mumbai, said, “At Apollo, we have always been at the forefront of adopting new technology, and the da Vinci Xi robotic system is a prime example of our commitment to offering our patients the best possible care. With its advanced technology, the robotic system will help us perform complex surgeries like Kidney transplants and major Uro-oncology procedures with greater precision, safety, and efficacy. We are confident that the Da Vinci Xi robotic system will make a significant difference in the lives of our patients.
