About da Vinci surgery
da Vinci overcomes the limitations of both traditional open surgery and conventional
minimally invasive surgery.
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
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.
da Vinci System requires that every surgical maneuver be performed with direct
input from your surgeon.
