Dr. Ross Brings da Vinci Robot to Family of Christ Christian School

Dr. Sharona Ross, Director of Minimally Invasive Surgery at Florida Hospital, Tampa, had the pleasure of visiting Family of Christ and Christian School to speak to their elementary and middle school students. The purpose of her visit was to showcase the state-of-the-art technology known as the da Vinci robot, in order to demonstrate the advanced techniques and technology she uses before and during minimally invasive surgeries.

The benefits of da Vinci surgery include but are not limited to:

  • Greater surgical precision
  • Increased range of motion
  • Improved dexterity
  • Enhanced visualization
  • Improved access

A life-changing alternative to invasive surgery, the da Vinci robot is an earth-shattering development in medical technology, and the purpose of Dr. Ross’ visit was to educate the children of Christ Christian School with what is happening in the medical community as of late.

Technology Shown During Dr. Ross’ Visit

This incredibly educational visit allowed the children a chance to test drive two da Vinci robotic systems, to further understand how surgeons, like Dr. Ross, use the robot to execute medical operations with critical accuracy. Students then had the chance to try Surgical Reality, a 360-imaging system used solely at Florida Hospital, Tampa to detect and analyze complex medical cases and map out surgical plans.

These unbelievably enriching experiences are sure to stay with the children for years to come, as Dr. Ross’ objective is encouraging the development of new and innovative techniques in medicine. Her passion for the advancement of Minimally Invasive Surgery is rooted in inspiring STEM education among youth, which is what she hoped to do with her invaluable visit to the Family of Christ Christian School.
