Delray Medical Center’s Ion robotic bronchoscopy program represents a step forward in the diagnosis and treatment of lung cancer. Dr. Stephen Milan, a pulmonologist and advanced bronchoscopist at Delray Medical Center, recently performed the first procedure using the new system.

Under CEO Daniel Listi and a team of medical professionals, the innovative Ion robotic platform allows for enhanced precision, improved access to hard-to-reach areas of the lung and minimally invasive procedures.

The platform combines advanced robotics, real-time imaging and artificial intelligence to enable bronchoscopic procedures with exceptional accuracy and safety. 

The robot-assisted procedures take place in the medical center’s new operating room in its designated advanced bronchoscopy suite.
