Robotic Surgery & Navigation

At Knox Private Hospital we strive to be at the forefront of advances in medical technology, offering our patients and surgeons options for a tailored surgical experience.

Across specialty areas: 

Colorectal, General surgery, Gynaecology, Neurosurgery, Orthopaedic & Urology

Knox Private Hospital is delighted offer our surgeons and patient’s access to the da Vinci® Xi™ Surgical System and Trumpf operating table.

The advancements in this technology are focused on best outcomes for patients, allowing for more complex procedures to be performed.

Xi Robot

The da Vinci Xi is the most advanced surgical robot available, enabling surgeons to perform minimally invasive surgery with an advanced 3D high-definition view.

It allows for multi-point access used for a variety of surgeries, mainly in the area of Urology as well as Colorectal surgery, Gynaecology.

Robot-assisted surgery translates the surgeon's hand movements with robotic arms performing scaled-down, tiny movements within the body.

The surgeon remains 100 per cent in control of the operation but the robot provides optimised 3D vision, magnification and motion tremor control, allowing the surgeon to operate high-tech instrumentation with greater dexterity and precision.

The instrument size makes it possible for surgeons to operate through smaller incisions.

Trumpf table

The Trumpf table synchronizes movements with the da Vinci Robot (they ‘speak’ to each other) which means that patient can be dynamically positioned and repositioned while the surgeon operates. The ability to reposition the operating table allows for the best exposure and access to the anatomy targeted. This helps to increase efficiency and better manage the patient during robotic-assisted procedures.

We are proud to offer our patient’s access to the Mako Robot for Orthopaedic procedures.

An Australian First at Knox Private Hospital – Brain Lab Curve® Navigation

September 2020

Curve® 2 Navigation is Brain Lab’s most powerful and versatile image guided surgery platform that offers more than navigation. Featuring an extra-large 4K display, surgeons can plan, review, document and stream surgery from anywhere in the operating theatre.

This cutting edge technology is the gold-standard of imaging, providing enhanced accuracy and precision, improved ergonomics for our surgeons and accommodates patient preference for a minimally invasive approach, reducing pain and scarring and reducing the recovery period.

Curve® 2 Navigation technology complements the other advanced surgical capabilities available at Knox Private which includes the da Vinci and Mako robots, ensuring that the most advanced technology is available to support our doctors and staff to deliver best patient outcomes.

Curve® 2 Navigation - Digital Surgery

Easier Preoperative setup & planning is possible, with a slim display and lightweight camera cart that allows positions according to the surgeons preferred setup and limitless case planning is available.

Superior Intraoperative visualization & guidance allows positioning freedom and high resolution viewing with a 32 inch display, 40% more viewing space and a new level of detail with microscope or endoscope images displayed in 4K.

Immediate Postoperative documentation & archiving for clear record keeping achieved manually and automatically to any location.
