(9-14-22) Mercer Health is delighted to announce the arrival of the da Vinci Xi® system.  The remarkable technology offers the most up-to-date technology the medical field has to offer and will benefit both patients and surgeons. 

Dr. James Reichert, general and bariatric surgeon at Mercer Health shares –

“Robotic surgery allows us to provide state-of-the-art surgical care to our patients.”

Benefits to the patient include, fewer complications, shorter recovery time, reduced hospital stays and reduced blood loss.  Additionally, providing robotic surgery at Mercer Health brings another enhanced service to the community, decreasing the inconveniences of increased travel time and frustrations of unfamiliar hospitals, nurses, doctors and other staff. 

With the system onsite, Mercer Health surgery staff will begin training which will take place over the course of the next month.  The first robotically-assisted surgery is being planned for late October.
