Million Dollar Gift Offers Patients Most Sophisticated Robotic Platform for Minimally Invasive Surgery

4/15/2010

Thanks to a generous million dollar gift, High Point Regional Health System now provides the most sophisticated robotic platform for minimally invasive surgery, the new da Vinci Si.

"I am pleased to be able to provide the funding for this important new technology at High Point Regional Health System, said David Hayworth who contributed $1 million to purchase this robotic surgical system. I am very impressed with the robotics program that Dr. Hall is leading here and feel truly gratified in knowing that many of our patients with cancer and other health issues will benefit tremendously by having this surgical option available to them right here in High Point. I also sincerely hope that my gift will inspire additional resources to support other important programs such as this for the benefit of the people served by our hospital.

The da Vinci Si has precise surgical capabilities; therefore, providing surgeons the ability to perform difficult surgeries with unprecedented accuracy. The sophisticated robotic platform is designed to expand the surgeom's capabilities.

With da Vinci Si, small incisions are used to introduce miniaturized, wristed instruments and a high-definition 3D camera. At the same time, state-of-the-art robotic and computer technologies scale, filter and seamlessly translate the surgeon's hand movements into precise micro-movements using the da Vinci instruments.

The da Vinci Si will be used by a number of doctors to perform both urologic and gynecologic surgeries at High Point Regional.
