Ever wonder what it would be like to try your hand at operating the modern medical technology that allows surgeons to perform complex procedures through just a few small incisions? St. Rose Dominican San Martín Hospital is giving southern Nevadans opportunity to play the full-scale version of Operation.

In conjunction with the creators of the advanced daVinci Xi technology, San Martín Hospital will turn its main lobby into a surgical demonstration lab for two days, giving people opportunity to operate a da Vinci Xi Robotic Surgical System.

Students, future doctors & nurses, and surgeons of tomorrow can try their hand on this impressive technology. This is also an opportunity for those considering a minimally invasive daVinci procedure to better understand the technology and how it assists surgeons perform complex procedures.

The da Vinci Xi Surgical System’s 3D-HD vision system provides surgeons a highly magnified view, virtually extending their eyes and hands into the patient. The robot translates the surgeon’s hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside the patient’s body. The Xi can be used across a spectrum of minimally invasive surgical procedures and has been optimized for multi-quadrant surgeries in the areas of gynecology, urology, thoracic, cardiac and general surgery.
