New Community Memorial Hospital Adds Second daVinci Surgical Robot
As we prepare to debut our new Community Memorial Hospital (CMH) in Ventura this winter, we are excited to announce the arrival of our second daVinci surgical robot! The daVinci device, made by Northern California-based Intuitive Surgical, is a three-armed robot which allows surgeons to perform amazingly precise surgeries with very small incisions. We captured the delivery, installation, and calibration of this advanced surgical system in this behind the scenes vlog!
The Community Memorial Hospital robotics surgery program was the first non-academic robotic surgery program to launch between Los Angeles and San Francisco almost 15 years ago. The arrival of this innovative system at CMH marked the beginning of a whole new frontier of surgery in Ventura County by introducing technology that allows surgeons to perform amazingly precise surgeries with very small incisions. Smaller incisions mean less invasive procedures overall, which can shorten recovery times, decrease post-procedure pain, and lower the likelihood of excess blood-loss and scarring.
Today, Community Memorial Hospital handles the largest number of robotic surgery cases between Los Angeles and Monterey, preforming well over 350 procedures every year. When our new Community Memorial Hospital opens this winter, our second daVinci surgical robot will allow us to increase our capacity for robotic procedures.
