da Vinci SP
The University of Illinois at Chicago Hospital and Health Center (UI Health) will become the first medical center in Chicago and among the first in the world to implement a state-of-the-art robotic surgical system that will be used to treat patients in minimally invasive surgery, particularly in Urology.
The da Vinci SP operating system is the fourth generation of the globally recognized da Vinci system used for minimally-invasive surgical treatment. The single-port robotic-assisted device was approved for urological procedures by the Food and Drug Administration in June 2018, and UI Health’s first-to-market status with the system affirms UI Urology’s Minimally Invasive Program and Urology’s standing as one the most highly respected programs in the U.S., said UI Urology chair Craig Niederberger, M.D.
