KISSIMMEE, FL - The latest in minimally invasive robotic surgery recently arrived at Poinciana Medical Center. Dr. Anthony Nunez, Credentialed Thoracic Surgeon, completed the first procedure using the hospital's new da Vinci Si(R) Surgical System. The new technology is used at Poinciana Medical Center for a wide range of procedures in urology, gynecology, general surgery and thoracic surgery.

"The da Vinci Si(R) Surgical System is a substantial addition to the surgical programs at our hospital," said Dottie Ogaz, Director of Perioperative Services at Poinciana Medical Center. "Our teams are now able to use 3-D and high-definition visualization while performing minimally invasive procedures. Patients will benefit from smaller incisions, shorter recovery times, and ultimately, improved outcomes."

"It's a privilege for us to bring robotic procedures to this community," said Chris Cosby, CEO of Poinciana Medical Center. "We already have four surgeons fully trained in this highly specialized robotic surgery, which benefits our patients as well as our surgical teams."

Robotic surgery is just one example of growth at Poinciana Medical Center. The hospital is also breaking ground on a $10.1 million expansion to its emergency room this year.
