Children’s recently added a new DaVinci Xi surgical robot to its operating room — the first in Omaha to be used in a pediatric setting. With the addition of the new surgical robot comes better outcomes for children. The technology allows for minimally-invasive procedures to be performed, using smaller incisions and resulting in quicker recovery times for young patients. Pediatric surgeon, Claudia Berrondo, M.D. recently completed the first surgical case using the robot. Thanks to donor support, Children’s was able to add this equipment to its operating suites, expanding the teaching capacity of Children’s and laying a strong foundation for building a multidisciplinary robotic surgery program for children. We are so grateful!
