What is Minimally-Invasive Robotic Surgery?

Surgeons at West Boca Medical Center now have an extra set of hands - a four-armed surgical robot called the da Vinci® Xi Surgical System. Our doctors guide robots during surgery. Our team guides you before and after.

Precision and Control


The surgery system uses a small camera and instruments inserted through small incisions. While looking at a 3-D image of the surgical site, your surgeon controls the system with his or her movements translated as precise micro-movements.

Unlike laparoscopic surgery, your doctor has a better view and can remain in a more comfortable position, which means more natural movements, leading to an improved experience for you.
