Visialia Times-Delta

The Tulare Regional Medical Center board of directors approved a lease/purchase of a daVinci robotic surgery machine that will cost up to $2.4 million over five years at its meeting on a vote of 4-1 Wednesday.

Dr. Prem Kamboj voted against leasing the robotic surgery tool.

The daVinci-SI single console robotic surgery machine lease coincides with Tulare Regional’s agreement with the University of Southern California Institute of Urology for its surgeons to perform surgeries using the daVinci in Tulare.
