Here's a thing they don't tell you about being human: At some point, you're going to have some medical stuff to deal with. For some, this mostly involves routine and preventative measures. For others, it may require further intervention and specialty care. Either way, as a patient, you want to know that your medical team has in-depth knowledge of the latest technological advancements, such as real-time imaging and robotic surgery. These technologies support everything from routine procedures to major surgeries, and lead to better patient care and outcomes. If you are an Englewood Health patient, you can rest assured that your team has the knowledge and experience to provide you with the care you deserve.
Currently, Englewood Health has two of the latest generation da Vinci Xi robots, as well as a simulator that gives their team the ability to train other providers. Providing ease of use for surgeons, The da Vinci Xi robot can contribute to shorter hospital stays, less blood loss during procedures, decreased post-operative pain, and faster recovery. Beginning in 2022, Englewood Health will also be a case observation site for gynecologic robotic surgery among just a handful of other institutions in the United States.
