Princeton Baptist Medical Center Surpasses 5,000 Robotic Surgery Cases

Dec 18, 2018

Princeton Baptist Medical Center today announced it has surpassed 5,000 robotic surgery cases in 10 years. This milestone represents a tremendous achievement and reaffirms Princeton Baptist’s commitment to provide the latest advances in minimally invasive surgery for its patients. The surgical team at Princeton, including several physicians, recently celebrated with a reception, including representatives of Intuitive, maker of the da Vinci Surgical System.

“It’s monumental,” said Intuitive robotic surgical device rep, John Allred, when describing Princeton Baptist’s latest accolade. “Princeton has the passion to be the best hospital it can be – whether it is robotics or whatever else,” Allred added.

Princeton’s first robotic surgical procedure was completed on July 16, 2008, by Dr. Vincent Bivins. Since then, the hospital has seen a dramatic increase in the use of robotics in surgery cases – from general to cardiac to gynecological and more.

In addition to honoring the hospital for the robotic surgery milestone, four surgeons were recognized for completing more than 1,000 robotic cases in the last decade, including Drs. Vincent Bivins, Clifton Lewis, Stan Hewlett and Andrew DeWitt.

“This is pretty incredible,” Allred said. “Not many surgeons have done this many cases, especially robotics.”

Also recognized at the reception for their invaluable contributions to the Princeton robotics program were surgical staff members Donna Casey, Sandra Daily, Hazel Rhodes and Amanda Smitherman.
