KEY WEST, FL – November 23, 2021 – Lower Keys Medical Center has invested in a new surgical robot. Robotic surgery allows surgeons to perform complex procedures through small incisions. For many patients, robotic surgery can offer less pain and scarring, lower risk of infection, shorter hospital stays and quicker recovery.

The surgeon maintains total control of the robotic-assisted equipment, which translates his or her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments while performing a procedure. The equipment provides a highly magnified, 3D, high-definition view. 

Robotic surgery systems can be used for gynecological surgery, such as hysterectomies and fibroid surgery, and general, gallbladder, colon, and gastric sleeve surgeries.

“We’ve performed robotic procedures at Lower Keys Medical Center for 10 years, but this upgraded technology will allow us to perform these surgeries with even more precision,” said Stanley Santiago, MD, MBA, FACOG, of Keys Medical Group Obstetrics and Gynecology. 

“We are pleased to offer this exceptional technology to enhance our patients’ experience and recovery and augment the care provided by our skilled and experienced surgeons,” said David Clay, CEO. 

About: Lower Keys Medical Center is accredited by The Joint Commission, by the American College of Cardiology as a Chest Pain Center, by the American Heart Association/The Joint Commission as a Primary Stroke Center and by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission in echocardiography.
