Center for Advanced Robotics and Urologic Care

Combining expertise and technology for innovative care

Bethesda Health’s Center for Advanced Robotics and Urologic Care provides the highest level of robotic surgery care for a broad variety of medical conditions. Led by renowned endourologist, Raymond J. Leveillee., M.D., the Center brings advanced care and specialized treatment options to Palm Beach County.  With the da Vinci® Xi robotic surgical system, surgeons can perform minimally invasive surgeries with even greater accuracy and precision than traditional open surgical methods. 

About the da Vinci® Xi

Equipped with state-of-the-art technology, the da Vinci Xi gives surgeons an up-close look at the surgical site with its highly magnified, high definition, 3-D vision system. One notable feature of the da Vinci surgical line is the mechanical “wrist” that bends and rotates in a motion similar to the human wrist, allowing surgeons to make small, precise movements inside your body while minimizing the effects of hand tremors. As the latest model of da Vinci surgical systems, the Xi boasts a new overhead instrument arm that gives a wider range of positioning options for better access to the patient’s body. It also has a new and improved vision system, smaller and thinner instrument arms that offer a greater range of motion, and longer instrument shafts to optimize reach. The da Vinci Xi system can assist the surgeon in the treatment of prostate and gynecologic disorders, as well as for kidney stones and gall bladder disease. 

Benefits of Robotic Surgery

Minimally invasive and robotic surgeries offer many benefits to patients, including:

  • Smaller incisions
  • Less blood loss
  • Fewer complications 
  • Lower risk of infection
  • Less postoperative pain
  • A faster recovery

With all the advanced technology, refined surgical skills and experience, robotic surgery is not a universal solution for urological procedures. Patients are encouraged to discuss their options with their physician to find out if they can benefit from treatment options available through the Bethesda Center for Advanced Robotics and Urologic Care.
