Key Points:

  • The hospitals of Community Healthcare System use robot-assisted technology for minimally invasive surgeries and diagnostics to improve patient experiences and outcomes.
  • The da Vinci Xi® Surgical System, the most advanced system offered, provides surgeons with 3-D high-definition vision, additional arms, and instant image referencing.

Robot-assisted technology has transformed the way surgeries are performed at Community Healthcare System’s acute care hospitals. Instead of making large incisions, surgeons can now make a few small incisions thanks to the da Vinci Xi® Surgical System, which provides 3-D high-definition vision and additional robotic arms for precise control. Surgeons sit at a console and manipulate the arms equipped with surgical instruments, which interpret their hand, wrist, and finger movements in real-time. The use of robot technology has expanded to various procedures, including general surgical, gynecologic, thoracic, and urologic procedures.

Community Healthcare System’s surgeons are leaders in the use of da Vinci robotics, with experience in performing thousands of robot-assisted procedures. The benefits of robotic-assisted surgery include less pain, less scarring, and quicker recovery times. In the past, patients would put off surgeries due to worries about pain and recovery time, but with advanced technology, these concerns are no longer an issue.

St. Mary Medical Center, part of Community Healthcare System, was the first hospital in Northwest Indiana to offer partial and total knee replacement surgery with the Mako® Robotic Arm-Assisted Surgery System. This system uses 3-D modeling to provide personalized surgical experiences based on the patient’s specific anatomy. Patients who undergo knee replacements with Mako experience less pain and shorter recovery times.

In addition to robotic surgery assists, Community Healthcare System also employs robotic bronchoscopy technology for diagnostic testing of lung tissue and pulmonary nodules. These technologies allow for more precision, reach, stability, and faster results.
