New cutting-edge technology revolutionizes da Vinci surgery at Adventist Health Simi Valley

Adventist Health Simi Valley, a leading medical institution in Southern California, is proud to announce the groundbreaking integration of Intuitive Hub, an innovative video and virtual collaboration technology, to its da Vinci surgery program.

This state-of-the-art technology enables an unprecedented level of collaboration and education among surgeons, positioning Adventist Health as a pioneer in advancing surgical care and medical training in the United States.

The new technology allows surgeons to seamlessly share high-definition surgical videos and collaborate in real- time, regardless of their physical location. This revolutionary approach not only enhances the surgical team's ability to make informed decisions during complex procedures but it also facilitates the education and training of surgeons across the nation.

At the forefront of this initiative is Andrea Pakula, MD, a renowned general surgeon at Adventist Health Simi Valley, who has been instrumental in adopting this cutting-edge technology to improve Adventist Health’s da Vinci surgery practice and educate fellow surgeons.

“Dr. Pakula’s dedication to advancing surgical care has led to Adventist Health Simi Valley becoming the first hospital in California to implement this innovative approach to robotic surgery,” said Jennifer Swenson, President, Adventist Health Simi Valley.

"By incorporating video and virtual collaboration technology into our da Vinci surgery program, we're elevating the standard of care for our patients while fostering a collaborative learning environment for surgeons," added Dr. Pakula, Master Surgeon in Hernia and Robotic Surgery accredited by Surgical Review Corporation, the leading nonprofit, patient-safety organization.
