MountainView Hospital’s Las Vegas Institute for Robotic Surgery has acquired its second surgical robotic system, allowing surgeons more access to the latest equipment for minimally invasive surgery for patients.
MountainView Hospital was the first hospital in Las Vegas to offer the latest in robotic surgical technology as a surgical option, with the addition of its first advanced surgical robotic system in November 2014.
“Since adding the first advanced robotic surgical system to our suite of OR capabilities, demand from surgeons and patients continues to increase such that a second system was needed,” said Jeremy Bradshaw, MountainView Hospital Chief Executive Officer. “The system allows for more complex, minimally invasive surgeries. The addition of a second robotic system allows us to meet the growing demand and needs of our community.”
Along with the addition of the new robot, MountainView added a second OR Table to its robotic surgical suites. Rather than traditional stationary tables, these integrated surgical tables move in tandem with the surgical robotic system, allowing for optimal positioning of the patient.
Additionally, MountainView acquired a fifth surgical console, allowing for the possibility of dual surgeons in one case and for the expansion of training. Since launching the Las Vegas Institute for Robotic Surgery in 2011, MountainView has pioneered robotic procedures, including Southern Nevada’s first robotic lobectomy, delivered advanced education courses to providers, and participated in nationwide clinical trials.
The latest robotic surgical system acquired by MountainView has broader capabilities than prior generations, and has the ability to be used for thoracic, colorectal, gynecological and general surgery. Minimally invasive surgery allows for a quicker recovery time, less pain, less bleeding and shorter hospitalization.
The latest robotic surgical system possesses 3D-HD visualization, giving surgeons a highly magnified view. The system’s overhead arm architecture provides the surgeon anatomical access from virtually any position, simplifying multi-quadrant surgeries. Smaller, thinner arms coupled with longer instrument shafts permit greater range of motion and more flexibility than ever before.
MountainView continues to be the leader in robotic surgery, offering an extensive panel of surgeons and pairing them with trained staff and nurses, who are part of dedicated robotic surgical teams. The latest robotic surgical system joins MountainView’s current robotic systems, bringing the total number of surgical robot systems at MountainView Hospital to four.
MountainView offers many different types of robotically assisted procedures including ear, nose and throat (ENT), gynecological, fertility and gynecological oncology, urogynecological, urology, thoracic, colorectal and general surgery including single-site gallbladder surgery.
