McLaren Oakland is pleased to announce the recent acquisition of the da Vinci® XI™ Surgical System. The da Vinci® XI™ Surgical System was designed with the goal of further advancing the technology used in minimally invasive surgery. The da Vinci® XI™ Surgical System can be used across a spectrum of minimally invasive surgical procedures and has been optimized for multi-quadrant surgeries in the areas of gynecology, urology thoracic, cardiac and general surgery.

By performing robotic-assisted surgery, surgeons can operate using much smaller incisions than in traditional surgery. The system’s enhanced high resolution three-dimensional imaging system and flexible robotic arms allow surgeons to perform delicate procedures with a greater range of motion, control, and precision.

Advantages of robotic surgery for the patient often include:

  • Less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Fewer complications
  • Faster return to normal activities
  • Lower risk of infection

Margaret Dimond, president and CEO of McLaren Oakland states, “The da Vinci® XI™ System is an expandable technology platform that is designed to accommodate and seamlessly integrate a range of current technologies, as well as future innovations, in areas such as imaging, advanced instruments and anatomical access. We are truly thrilled to be a leader in this field and look forward to continue bringing Oakland County minimally invasive surgical options.”
