Swedish's Robotic-Assisted Surgery Program Featured on KCPQ TV

SEATTLE, July 31, 2009 -- Swedish's Robotic-Assisted Surgery program was featured today on Seattle's FOX Television affiliate, KCPQ, during their morning newscast.

The story, which was four-minutes in length and broadcast live from KCPQ's studio, featured an interview with and demonstration from urologic surgeon Jim Porter, M.D., who is medical director of Swedish's Robotic-Assisted Surgery program.

The interview and demonstration focused on the da Vinci Surgical System, its various uses and benefits. Physicians at Swedish who perform these robotic-assited surgeries are currently using one of two brand-new da Vinci Si Surgical Systems -- featuring enhanced high-definition 3D vision for superior clinical capability -- to help them perform minimally invasive prostate, gynecologic, kidney and thoracic cases.
