Posted by on Aug 30, 2016 | 0 comments

ROSEVILLE, Calif. — Sutter Roseville Medical Center this week unveiled its new Infusion Center, a centerpiece of a comprehensive cancer center on the Sutter Roseville campus that also includes offices for oncology specialists and surgeons.

The new 13,500-square-foot Infusion Center was designed after much feedback from cancer patients who will use the new facility. For many cancer patients, the new Infusion Center will become a second home, requiring them to stay up to 10 hours a day with several sessions a week, and their care can last for months and even years.

“It’s incredibly comfortable and more calming here,” said longtime multiple sclerosis patient Shawna Lopez of Lincoln, whose monthly visits last more than five hours. She said in the past she would be isolated in a room, where it was tough to while away the hours. The new infusion bays are large and open, with curtains that can be closed if patients want privacy. “Most of us like to talk to each other,” she said, “so this is perfect.”

Sutter Roseville Medical Center’s growing infusion program has been bursting at the seams, with an increase in patients making the move to a larger facility necessary. Previously, infusion services were split into two locations on the Sutter Roseville campus.

That all changed Monday. The new Sutter Cancer Center, Roseville opened a consolidated Infusion Center on the second floor with 42 infusion bays – up from 33 bays in the former locations – with plenty of space to grow. In addition, a dedicated pharmacy was constructed inside the Infusion Center and will allow for a more efficient process for preparing the medications and delivering them to the patient bays.

SACRAMENTO — Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento on Wednesday became the first hospital in California to use the next-generation robotic surgery system called the da Vinci Xi, which provides 3-D, high-definition visualization and greater dexterity, precision and control for the surgeon as well as less pain and a quicker recovery for the patient.

The new da Vinci Xi replicates surgeon movements with enhanced dexterity.

Steven C. Patching, M.D., who in 1993 was the first to use laparoscopic, minimally invasive surgery in the Sacramento region, became the first surgeon in California to complete a procedure – a gallbladder removal – using the new da Vinci Xi system.

The da Vinci Xi, which was approved by the FDA in April, has broader capabilities than prior generations of the da Vinci system, with the adaptability to be used across an array of surgeries in urology, gynecology, thoracic, cardiac and general surgery.

The Xi possesses 3D-HD visualization, giving surgeons a highly magnified view, virtually extending their eyes and hands into the patient. The da Vinci Xi system’s new overhead arm architecture provides the surgeon anatomical access from virtually any position, simplifying multi-quadrant surgeries. Smaller, thinner arms coupled with longer instrument shafts permit greater range of motion and more flexibility than ever before. Read More
