miVIP Surgery Center in California Celebrates 1,200 Robotic Surgeries

The miVIP Orange County Multispecialty Surgery Center, part of a network of ambulatory surgery facilities providing minimally invasive surgery paired with concierge-style VIP patient services, has completed over 1,000 robotic-assisted surgeries as of May 2019. miVIP facilities were the first freestanding ambulatory surgery centers in the United States to provide robotic-assisted procedures using the da Vinci® Surgical System. The miVIP Orange County Multispecialty Surgery Center in Tustin has consistently achieved excellent outcomes, receiving top patient satisfaction ratings for surgical excellence and nursing support in a “spa-like” medical setting.

To celebrate their achievement, the miVIP Orange County Multispecialty Surgery Center is hosting an Open House on May 29, 2019, 5-9 p.m. at 14642 Newport Ave., Ste. 100, Tustin, California, 92780. Physicians new to miVIP are invited to join miVIP surgeons and surgical support staff for a tour of the state-of-the-art facility and a test drive of the robotic da Vinci® Xi Surgical System. Drinks and appetizers will be served.

Surgeons at miVIP provide robotic-assisted surgery for obesity, hernia, GERD, gallbladder, prostate cancer, gynecology conditions, and foot and ankle problems, among other medical concerns. Always seeking ways to advance and improve surgical techniques that deliver better outcomes for patients, the Tustin bariatric team was recently the first to adopt the da Vinci system’s SureForm 60 surgical stapler with SmartFire™ technology, which improves precision and reduces risk of tissue damage to the patient.

“Robotic surgery with the da Vinci® gives our surgeons enhanced visibility of the anatomy, and increased flexibility, precision and control over their instruments,” says Orly Benyaminy, Vice President, miVIP West Coast. “This robotic technology takes laparoscopic surgery to the next level, allowing for incisions no bigger than a dime to minimize damage to the tissues surrounding the surgical site. For patients undergoing surgery, this means a lower risk of complications, less pain, a shorter recovery time, and the best possible outcome.”
