Robotic Laparoscopic Surgery at Medical Center Arlington
Medical Center Arlington was the first hospital in Tarrant County to acquire the da Vinci® Skills Simulator. In addition to the Skills Simulator, MCA is the first in Arlington to have the latest in robotic technology, the da Vinci Si. The Si is the newest version of the revolutionary da Vinci Robotic Surgical System and is designed to provide additional clinical benefits and efficiency in the operating room. The Si offers features such as enhanced 3D, high-definition vision of the operative field, superior visual clarity of tissue and anatomy, and surgical dexterity and precision far greater than the human hand. These technological advancements will provide MCA surgeons with unparalleled precision, dexterity and control that enable a minimally invasive approach for many complex surgical procedures.
