Riverside Enhances Robotic Surgery Program With New da Vinci Xi Surgical System

July 15, 2020

Located at Riverside Regional Medical Center in Newport News, health system leadership announced this week it has upgraded its robotic surgery program with the next generation da Vinci Xi Surgical System.

“Upgrading our robotic surgical system is a reaffirmation of the commitment that Riverside has to this community,” said Scott V. Burgess, M.D., of Riverside Urology Specialists. Dr. Burgess completed a fellowship in robotic and minimally-invasive surgery at the Tulane University of Louisiana Medical Center and is board-certified by the American Board of Urology.

This newest model in the da Vinci system allows surgeons to perform more common procedures than on the previous model introduced in 2014. With a new overhead arrangement, robotic arms are able to expand for better movement, reach and dexterity – offering surgeons better access to more parts of the body.
