da Vinci Surgical System

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a condition that may require surgery, you owe it to yourself to learn about all of your medical options, including the most effective, least invasive surgical treatments available.

The da Vinci® Surgical System provides surgeons with an alternative to both traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy, putting a surgeon's hands at the controls of a state-of-the-art robotic platform. The da Vinci System enables surgeons to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions with unmatched precision.

For the patient, benefits may include:

  • Significantly less pain
  •  Less blood loss
  • Less scarring
  • Shorter recovery time
  • A faster return to normal daily activities
  • And in many cases, better clinical outcomes

Surgical robotics is a technology designed to give surgeons more precision and control during complex, minimally invasive procedures. It is an alternative to open surgery and laparoscopic surgery and can result in quicker recoveries for patients.

The da Vinci Surgical System "robot" is a state-of-the art medical device that enables surgeons to guide miniature instruments and a tiny, high-definition camera to the surgery site. Seated at a console, the surgeon guides several robotic arms, which hold the surgical instruments. State-of-the-art robotic and computer technology transform the surgeon’s hand and arm movements into small, precise movements. The robotic “wrists” can rotate a full 360 degrees, giving the surgeon exceptional accuracy, flexibility and range of motion. The da Vinci System requires that every surgical maneuver be performed with direct input from your surgeon – the machine cannot move on its own.
