DOWNERS GROVE, Ill. — DuPage Medical Group (DMG), the largest independent, multi-specialty physician group in Illinois, is the first freestanding ambulatory surgical center (ASC) in Illinois to perform minimally invasive outpatient procedures using the da Vinci Xi robotic surgical system.
Located in Lombard, Ill., the Surgical Center of DuPage Medical Group, the busiest ASC in the state of Illinois, functions independently as a freestanding ASC, providing patients access to surgical care without requiring a hospital stay. DMG is one of only 15 freestanding ASCs in the United States to operate on patients using the da Vinci Xi system for surgical procedures.
The da Vinci Xi enhances surgeons’ capabilities beyond what the human body allows, providing better visibility, accuracy and precision. Patients can benefit from smaller incision sites, fewer complications and faster recovery times. Additionally, in our Lombard ASC setting, patients experience higher satisfaction, lower infection rates and reduced costs when compared to a hospital setting.
“More than ever, people are seeking cost-effective, quality care in a safe environment,” said Steve Nelson, CEO of DMG. “This surgical system is an additional tool to allow our highly skilled surgeons to provide our patients with the best possible health outcomes.”
DMG is using the da Vinci Xi for general surgery and urologic procedures including cholecystectomies, hernia repairs and prostatectomies.
