Robotic Surgery

State-of-the-Art Care from El Centro Regional Medical Center

At El Centro Regional Medical Center, we utilize innovative, advanced technology to provide the highest level of care possible to our patients and families in Imperial Valley. As part of this ongoing commitment, ECRMC is home to the da Vinci® Xi™, the next generation in robotic surgical equipment. The da Vinci® Xi™ is the most advanced minimally invasive option for surgeries in the areas of colorectal, general, gynecologic, and urology. The da Vinci® Xi™ allows ECRMC patients to experience the dramatic benefits of an accurate, efficient robotic procedure.

Learn About the da Vinci Xi System

The da Vinci Xi System expands and enhances some of the da Vinci System features previously operated at ECRMC, including articulating instruments, 3D high definition (3D-HD) visualization, intuitive motion, and an ergonomic design. The surgeon is 100% in control of the robotic-assisted system, which translates his/her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments.

The benefits of robotic surgery include:

  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Limited blood loss
  • Less risk of infection
  • Less pain during recovery
  • Smaller incisions/Minimized scarring
  • Quicker recoveries
