High Plains Surgery Center became the first ambulatory surgery center in Wyoming to offer the newest generation of minimally invasive robotic surgery in an outpatient setting. The da Vinci X system can be used on a wide range of outpatient procedures benefiting patients through smaller incisions, greater precision, fewer complications, and greater satisfaction.
“The new technology builds on our tradition of advancing patient care and quality outcomes through innovation,” said Jeremy D. Gates, MD, the surgeon partner who oversaw the clinical requirements needed to bring the da Vinci X system to the High Plains Surgery Center.
The system is designed to interpret a surgeon’s hand movements at the console in real-time by bending and rotating. “The da Vinci X moves like a human hand but has a greater range of motion,” noted Dr. Gates. “The system also features highly magnified, high-definition views of the surgical area. The instrument size makes it possible for surgeons to operate through one or just a few small incisions.”
The robotics-assisted technology will be used to complete general procedures including hernia repairs, hysterectomies, and laparoscopic cholecystectomies.
“Supporting our partners in leveraging modern, innovative technology to improve patient care in the outpatient surgery setting is an extension of our mission,” said Chris Bishop, CEO for Regent Surgical Health, management partner for High Plains Surgery Center. “Dr. Gates and team have completed the first few procedures using the da Vinci X and the outcomes are exceeding expectations. We look forward to continuing to provide exceptional care and deliver high quality clinical outcomes, as we elevate what’s possible in the outpatient setting.”
