An extension of your surgeon’s eyes and handsTexas Health Rockwall da Vinci

The da Vinci Xi serves as a natural extension of your surgeon’s eyes and hands, offering enhanced vision, precision, dexterity, and control.

The da Vinci Xi Surgical System utilizes advanced, robotic, computer and 3D high definition optical technologies. The 3D-HD image is highly magnified, so your surgeon has a close-up view of the area he or she is operating on.

The da Vinci’s mechanical wrists bend and rotate to mimic the movements of the human wrist, allowing surgeons to operate through small incisions.




Less invasive

The da Vinci Xi Surgical System offers the latest advancements in minimally invasive surgery. Incisions made with
da Vinci Xi robotic surgery are much smaller than cuts made during “open” surgery, making it among the least invasive options for surgery. For you, this typically means less blood loss, less scarring, less disruption to your body, less pain, and less time in the hospital.
