Swedish/Edmonds Begins Offering Robotic-Assisted Surgery to Community

EDMONDS, WASH., Nov. 18, 2011 – Swedish today announced the newest addition to its family of latest-generation da Vinci Surgical Systems, bringing the total to six robots across the non-profit’s health-care system. The newest da Vinci Si HD system robot, located at the Swedish Edmonds campus, will provide surgeons with more precision and dexterity over existing surgical approaches, helping improve patient treatment and reduce recovery time.

 

As one of the first medical centers in the region to perform robotic-assisted surgery, Swedish is home to the fastest growing and most experienced robotic-assisted surgical program in the Pacific Northwest. The multidisciplinary, robotic-assisted surgical program was first established at Swedish in 2005. Since then, Swedish-affiliated surgeons have performed more than 4,000 procedures using the multi-specialty da Vinci Surgical System, more than any other robotic-assisted surgical program in the region.
