Next level robotic surgery at Life Kingsbury Hospital, Cape Town


Robotic Surgery has been taken to the next level in SA at the Life Kingsbury Hospital, Cape Town, with the launch of the new da Vinci X System which offers even more innovation and precision to robotically-assisted surgical procedures. The new system allows surgeons to expand their capabilities and offers significantly more technological benefits.

It’s one of the world’s most advanced surgical systems which has benefited millions of patients globally. “The technology translates surgeon’s hand movements through tiny instruments which allow for smaller, more precise movements. The technology is practically the extension of a surgeon’s eyes and hands at the surgical site,” says Dr Conray Moolman, Urologist and Registered da Vinci® Training Surgeon at Life Kingsbury.
