Our Lady of Lourdes has performed over 1,000 cases since our robotic program began in October 2010. As we continue to expand and invest in cutting-edge technologies, we are proud to introduce our newest piece of equipment, the da Vinci® Xi. This state-of-the-art robot features more capabilities and enhanced surgical performance that creates a natural extension of the surgeon’s eyes and hands. Using the da Vinci® Xi, our surgeons perform complex surgeries with a minimally invasive approach, ultimately resulting in smaller scars, shorter hospital stays and faster recovery time.
Today, we have 15 robotic certified surgeons in a number of specialties including general surgery, surgical oncology, urology, bariatric medicine, colo-rectal surgery, gynecology and head/neck surgery. We are also proud to be the first hospital in Acadiana that combines the Trumpf 7000dV advanced operating table with our daVinci Xi robot. This seamless integration offers real time, dynamic positioning during a robotic surgery. The new duo allows our team to perform a wider range of more complex procedures with improved operating room efficiency and precision.
