Saint Clare’s Health Acquires the New da Vinci™ Surgical System
Denville, NJ (October 10, 2019) – Saint Clare’s Health is proud
to announce that it has acquired the latest da Vinci™ Xi Surgical
System. The da Vinci Xi system has broader capabilities than prior generations
of the da Vinci system. It can be used across a wide spectrum of minimally
invasive surgical procedures and has been optimized for complex, multi-quadrant
Saint Clare’s Health has been utilizing the da Vinci Surgical Systems
since 2006. They have provided patients with a minimally invasive alternative
to open surgery that reduces many of the costs and complications associated
with open procedures. The new da Vinci system is designed with the goal
of further advancing the technology used in minimally invasive surgery
for complex diseases and conditions in gynecology, urology, thoracic,
cardiac and general surgery. This leading second-generation robotic technology
enables surgeons to operate through single incision, minimizing scarring.
The Advantage of the Xi System
The new Xi system offers efficient anatomical access and crystal-clear
3D-HD visualization. By enabling more efficient access throughout the
abdomen and chest, the da Vinci system expands upon core da Vinci features,
including wristed instruments, 3D-HD visualization, intuitive motion and
ergonomic design. As with all da Vinci systems the da Vinci Xi system’s
immersive 3D-HD vision system provides surgeons a highly magnified view,
virtually extending their eyes and hands into the patient.
Compared to prior da Vinci systems, the da Vinci Xi system’s key
• A new overhead instrument arm architecture designed to facilitate
anatomical access from virtually any position.
• A new endoscope digital architecture that creates a simpler, more
compact design with improved visual definition and clarity.
• An ability to attach the endoscope to any arm, providing flexibility
for visualizing the surgical site.
• Smaller, thinner arms with newly designed joints that offer a greater
range of motion than ever before.
• Longer instrument shafts designed to give surgeons greater operative reach.
The da Vinci Xi offers improved vision
The da Vince Xi 8mm endoscope provides the surgeon a brighter, higher resolution
view of the surgical field with integrated Firefly® fluorescence imaging
to highlight specific issues such as vessels and bile ducts. The Xi offers
great patient access. The boom mounted architecture of the da Vinci Xi
surgical system improves access around the patient with redesigned arms
to provide greater range of motion.
A System Designed for the Future
The da Vinci Xi system is an expandable technology platform that is designed
to accommodate and seamlessly integrate a range of current technologies
in areas such as imaging, advanced instruments, and anatomical access,
as well as future innovations.
The first surgery using the da Vinci SI will be on Friday, October 11th
by Aram E. Jawed, M.D.
Dr. Jawed is a general surgeon, board certified by the American Board of
Surgery specializing in laparoscopic, bariatric, and robotic surgery.
Dr. Jawed is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons (FACS). He is
also certified by da Vinci® Surgical as a robotic surgeon.
After successful completion of his general surgery training at Morristown
Medical Center he received the Resident Achievement Award from the Society
of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons. He completed an additional year of minimally
invasive bariatric and robotic surgical training as a Fellow at the Innovation
Health in northern Virginia and a Bariatric Center of Excellence.
