The da Vinci® technology enables surgeons to perform complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions with unmatched precision. This means significantly less pain, less scarring, a shorter hospital stay and a faster return to normal daily activities.
In general, robotic and minimally invasive surgeries benefits are:
• Less pain and scarring
• Less blood loss
• Fewer blood transfusions
• Less risk of infections
• Shorter hospital stay
• Faster return to normal activities
The da Vinci® System is a state-of-the-art robotic surgical platform with magnified 3D, high-definition vision designed to take surgery beyond the limits of the human hand. By overcoming the challenges of traditional surgical approaches, da Vinci® is changing the experience of surgery for people around the world. Your doctor controls the da Vinci® System, which translates his or her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside your body. Though it is often called a "robot," da Vinci® cannot act on its own - surgery is performed entirely by your doctor. Together, da Vinci® technology allows your doctor to perform complex procedures through just a few tiny openings. As a result, you may be able to get back to normal activities faster without the usual recovery following major surgery.
