SARASOTA, FL – Always on the cutting edge of technology to enhance medical diagnosis and treatment, Sarasota Interventional Radiology (SIR-Florida), now at its new location in Lakewood Ranch, recently became the first outpatient medical facility in the U.S.to acquire the XACT ACE™ Robotic System for CT-guided interventional radiology procedures.
ACE is the world’s first and only hands-free robotic technology that combines advanced image-based procedure planning and navigation with robotic instrument insertion and steering capabilities, enabling the delivery of site-specific percutaneous solutions with accuracy, consistency, and efficiency. At this time, SIR-Florida is performing biopsies with ACE and will expand the use of this technology to ablations and other procedures in the future.
“Our philosophy is to provide exemplary care at SIR-Florida, and the XACT ACE™ Robotic System will help us to deliver on our mission to bring unparalleled service to our patients in the most efficient way,” said Gerald E. Grubbs, MD, SIR-Florida’s Founder and Medical Director. “We are proud to be the first non-hospital provider in Florida to offer the XACT ACE™ Robotic system for accurate, consistent, and efficient procedural outcomes while delivering safe, cost-effective, and exceptional care to our patients.”
The XACT ACE™ Robotic system is compatible with a broad range of imaging modalities, and Its small footprint and high mobility features enable healthcare providers to efficiently treat a broad range of patient care needs in multiple areas of the body. “Utilizing the XACT ACETM Robotic System in an outpatient facility is a paradigm shift in the way interventional procedures are performed, which will elevate interventional radiology standards and ultimately benefit the patients,” stated Harel Gadot, Founder, Executive Chairman and President, XACT Robotics.
