About da Vinci surgery
Only da Vinci
overcomes the limitations of both traditional open surgery and conventional minimally invasive surgery.
The da Vinci
System is a sophisticated robotic platform designed to expand the surgeon’s capabilities – and for the first time – offer a minimally invasive option for major surgery.
The da Vinci® S™ Surgical System
With da Vinci
, small incisions are used to introduce miniaturized wristed instruments and a high-definition 3D camera. Seated comfortably at the da Vinci console, your surgeon views a magnified, high-resolution 3D image of the surgical site.
At the same time, state-of-the-art robotic and computer technologies scale, filter and seamlessly translate your surgeon's hand movements into precise micro-movements of the da Vinci instruments.
The System cannot be programmed, nor can it make decisions on its own. Rather, the da Vinci
System requires that every surgical maneuver be performed with direct input from your surgeon.
