Beaumont Health in Southfield has increased its fleet of robotic surgery systems by 50% after adding 24 da Vinci robotic surgical systems. The demand for minimally invasive surgical procedures, including hernia procedures, continues to increase and Beaumont will soon have more capacity to treat an additional 2,200 patients with minimally invasive robotic surgery.
“We expanded the robotic surgery program to meet demand,” says Dr. Benjamin Schwartz, president of Beaumont Health. “Our patients — and their physicians — deserve access to the latest technology available. The robotic surgery teams at all eight Beaumont Health hospitals are recognized as the best of the best. More robots mean more patients will have access to these experts and advanced capabilities when they need it most.”
Dr. Randy Janczyk and Dr. Anthony Iacco are excited about what this means for their patients.
“When robotic surgery is appropriate for the patient and the situation, we generally see great outcomes,” says Dr. Anthony Iacco, medical director of robotics at Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak, and lead investigator for the study. “This is a win-win both for the patient’s experience and for reducing time spent in the hospital.”
