What is The da Vinci Surgical System?

 

Some patients may not have had the chance to learn about what The da Vinci System does and how it operates. This system is powered by robotic technology allows the surgeon’s hand movements to be translated into smaller, precise movements of tiny instruments inside the patient’s body. The camera sends images to a video monitor in the operating room to guide doctors during surgery and the surgeon is 100% in control of the da Vinci System at all times.

The da Vinci System has brought minimally invasive surgery to more than 3 million patients worldwide. Some surgeries it is used for includes cardiac, head and neck, colorectal, gynecologic, thoracic, urologic and more.
