HDH Performs 2000th daVinci Surgery

The Center for Surgical Innovation at Henrico Doctors’ Hospital reached a milestone today by completing its 2000th operation using the daVinci Robotic System. The procedure was performed by Dr. Danny Shaban at 11:30 a.m.

Henrico Doctors’ Hospital was the first hospital in the United States to perform general surgery using the daVinci Robotic system ten years ago. The computer-assisted surgical device was approved July 11, 2000, by the United States Food and Drug Administration and Dr. William Kelley performed the first operation the next day.

As predicted 10 years ago, the daVinci Robotic system has revolutionized surgery. Through a minimally invasive approach and greater precision, surgeons are able to provide patients with less pain and a quicker recovery.

“We are proud to be Virginia’s leading provider of robotic surgery” said Patrick Farrell, CEO. “We have the top surgeons who are experts in their fields at Henrico Doctors’ Hospital. They provide patients with advanced clinical care right here at a community hospital.
