Inside the Witting Surgical Center’s OR 1: High-Tech Robotic Surgery


DeSimoneatControlsCrouse Hospital has added a second da Vinci robot to its surgical arsenal. Here, surgeon Jeff DeSimone, MD, uses the minimally invasive technology for gall bladder surgery.

The new system is equipped with a skills simulator, which contains a variety of exercises and scenarios designed to give surgeons the opportunity to improve their proficiency with the systems’ console controls. The straightforward set-up allows users to practice unassisted or with supervision, according to their preference. Built-in metrics enable users to assess skills, receive real-time feedback and track progress.

Crouse is a leader in robotic surgery, performing more robotic surgical procedures than any other area hospital.
