IRMC is home to the da Vinci® XI™ Surgical System, the most advanced minimally invasive option for complex surgeries in the areas of colorectal, general, gynecologic and urologic surgery. The XI system’s enhancements include:
- Articulating instruments
- Sharper 3D-HD visualization
- Intuitive and greater range of motion
The XI allows the surgeon to explore a different part of the body mid-operation without repositioning the entire apparatus. It has four arms mounted onto an overhead boom architecture that can rotate and pivot into virtually any position. The arms can even be disconnected and reconnected mid-procedure if necessary.
Further, the endoscope used to see what’s inside the body delivers sharper and more defined three-dimensional images (10 times greater that the human eye). It can also be attached to any of the robotic arms, which lets the surgeon scope out the surgical area with more flexibility. The arms of the da Vinci XI are smaller, thinner and have a greater range of motion. Even the instrument shafts — the sleeves that are inserted inside the incision — are longer so that surgeons can probe further than before.

Indiana was the hometown of actor Jimmy Stewart (1908-1997), who was born there and lived at 104 North 7th Street. On May 20, 1983, Stewart was given a 75th birthday celebration by the town. A museum to his memory was opened on the third floor of the local public library, and a bronze statue of Stewart was erected in his honor at the county courthouse. The town annually holds a Jimmy Stewart film festival as part of the town’s “It’s a Wonderful Life” holiday celebration.
