Augusta Health is committed to providing superior patient care.

Our state-of-the-art da Vinci Xi Surgical System® offers significant benefits to patients and is the next step in the evolution of surgery. It allows surgeons to perform minimally invasive surgery using smaller incisions, and with less risk to the patient.


Faster recovery: Patients can expect shorter hospital stays, allowing patients to recover at home. This typically speeds recovery time.

Less blood loss: Smaller incisions and more precise surgery can greatly reduce blood loss, eliminating the need for blood transfusions for certain operations.

Faster healing: Small incisions tend to heal faster and are not as painful as larger incisions made with more traditional surgeries.

Less pain: Smaller incisions mean less pain. Less pain means a reduced need for pain medication, which is especially important for patients using narcotics.

Robotic surgery has become the standard of care for many conditions. In addition to urologic surgeries, the da Vinci Xi will also be used for colorectal surgery, gynecologic surgery, and general surgery. View All Procedures.

With robotic surgery, patients can return to their real-life activities much faster. That’s what I find to be the greatest advantage of all—having patients recover in a shorter time so they can get back to their lives.
