Port St. Lucie, FL — St. Lucie Medical Center is excited to announce its new advanced robotic surgical system — the da Vinci Xi.

This equipment is the latest in robotic surgical treatments designed to provide surgeons with precision, increased dexterity and control with a minimally invasive approach to complex procedures.

"We are proud to be the first and only hospital to offer the latest generation of highly advanced robotic technology in St. Lucie, Indian River, Martin and Okeechobee counties," said Jay Finnegan, Chief Executive Officer, St. Lucie Medical Center. "The addition of this innovative procedure further demonstrates our commitment to providing the community with outstanding, state-of-the-art healthcare."

The benefits of minimally invasive robotic surgery include faster recovery times, decreased hospital stays, less blood loss, reduced risk of infections and a smaller incision site allowing patients to return to their daily activities more quickly than traditional surgery. This advanced equipment offers surgeons high-definition 3D vision and a magnified view for complex diseases and conditions in gynecology, urology, general surgery including bowel and colon, and thoracic surgery.
