"Hospital of the Future" Expands Surgical Procedures

Oviedo, FL - The latest in minimally invasive surgical technology has arrived in Oviedo. Surgeons at Oviedo Medical Center, an HCA North Florida facility, performed the first da Vinci surgery at the hospital this week using the da Vinci Xi® Surgical System. This robotic surgical system is used for a wide range of procedures in urology, gynecology, gynecologic oncology, general surgery and colorectal surgery including hysterectomies, hernia repairs and radical prostatectomies.

"The da Vinci Xi® Surgical System is an important addition to Oviedo Medical Center's surgical program," said Dr. Christopher Bryant, gynecologic oncologist at Oviedo Medical Center. "This system will allow our team to perform surgeries using 3-D and high-definition visualization while using minimally invasive procedures. For patients this means improved outcomes, smaller incisions, less pain after surgery and shorter recovery times."

"We are proud to bring the da Vinci Xi® Surgical System to Oviedo," said KC Donahey, CEO of Oviedo Medical Center. "With multiple surgeons trained in this highly specialized robotic surgery, we are providing our community with access to the latest in medical technology in a state-of-the-art facility, close to their home."

Called the "hospital of the future," the 198,000-square-foot Oviedo Medical Center has been on the forefront of cutting-edge hospital technology since it opened in 2017. In addition to advanced surgical procedures, the facility includes a real-time location system, hand hygiene compliance monitoring and an advanced nurse call system to promote patient safety.
