Robotic Surgery
For the benefit of patients, JSMC implemented a robotic surgical system in 2013.
 
At a cost of nearly $2 million, the da Vinci® Surgical System represents the largest investment in a single piece of equipment by the hospital.
 
"There are few hospitals our size in America with a surgical robot. We are proud of this expansion of clinical capabilities for our patients across the Pennyrile region," Eric Lee, president & CEO, JSMC said at a news conference.
 
"Administration and the Department of Surgery staff had been studying robotic surgical systems for more than a year. We accelerated this acquisition based on growing interest by members of our medical staff," Beth McCraw, APRN, vice president, Nursing Services, said.
 
The first physician trained in the use of the system was Matthew Robinson, MD, FACS, a board-certified general surgeon. He has been a member of the JSMC Medical Staff since 2007.
 
"The da Vinci system will allow surgeons like me to perform minimally invasive surgery with more precision due to three dimensional viewing and laparoscopic instruments that allow more freedom of movement than current conventional instruments," Dr. Robinson said. "I am excited about the opportunity to provide this service to my patients."
 
Dr. Matthew Robinson performed the first robotic procedure at Jennie Stuart.
 
The da Vinci system is the leading robotic surgical system in use in the U.S. today.
Training update
Dr. Robinson received additional training and now can perform a procedure to remove the gallbladder, for example, with a single incision in the navel. It's called single-site surgery and is available at a small number of hospitals our size in the U.S.
