The cutting-edge da Vinci Xi robotic system has been added to the array of advanced medical technologies at Burjeel Medical City, the flagship facility of Burjeel Holdings. The good news was published on the hospital's website earlier this month. With the integration of the da Vinci Xi robot, the skilled surgeons at Burjeel Medical City can conduct intricate, minimally invasive procedures with unparalleled accuracy and efficiency, thereby enhancing the quality of patient care.

The introduction of the da Vinci Xi robot at Burjeel Medical City signifies a notable achievement in the hospital's dedication to delivering top-tier healthcare services to its patients. This state-of-the-art robotic surgical system offers numerous benefits in comparison to traditional surgery, including heightened surgical precision, improved visualization, and shorter recuperation periods.

Equipped with immersive 3D high-definition visualization technology, the da Vinci Xi robot presents surgeons with a highly detailed, magnified view of the surgical site. This enhanced visual clarity allows for superior precision during procedures, reducing the risk of complications and ensuring optimal patient outcomes.

The innovative robotic arms of the da Vinci Xi robot mimic the motion of a surgeon’s hand but with enhanced agility and a more excellent range of motion, allowing for exceptional anatomical access to surgical operating sites that are virtually impossible to reach using the traditional “straight-stick” laparoscopic surgical instruments.

Surgeons operate the robot remotely from a console, manipulating the robotic arms with exceptional control and precision. In addition, the robot’s advanced surgical instruments, including specialized endo-wrist devices, enable surgeons to perform intricate maneuvers with unmatched accuracy.

With the introduction of the da Vinci Xi robotic system, Burjeel Medical City is poised to offer patients a wide range of minimally invasive procedures, including complex surgeries across various specialties such as urology, gynecology, colorectal, upper gastrointestinal, thoracic, bariatric, hepatobiliary and general surgery, among others.

Dr. Jafaru Abu, Director of Robotic Surgery at the hospital, who also performed many robotic-assisted surgeries in the UK before joining BMC, expressed his excitement about introducing the da Vinci Xi robotic system to the hospital, stating, "We are proud to offer da Vinci robot-assisted surgery to many of our patients. This cutting-edge technology will enable our highly skilled surgeons to provide even better patient clinical outcomes. By reducing trauma, and overall recovery time, it will truly transform the field of surgery at Burjeel Medical City."

Burjeel Medical City has well-trained da Vinci-certified Western-board certified surgeons who have performed many robot-assisted surgical procedures across the globe before joining the hospital.

"The introduction of da Vinci Xi robotic system underscores our commitment to constantly evolving and adopting the latest medical technologies. With the integration of this new technology, we aim to reinforce our position as a leading healthcare institution at the forefront of medical innovation, providing patients with access to world-class, minimally invasive surgical procedures," said Mr. John Sunil, CEO of Burjeel Holdings.
