You've just been diagnosed with a condition requiring surgery. Until very recently your options included traditional surgery with a large open incision or laparoscopy, which uses small incisions but is typically limited to very simple procedures.
Thanks to a breakthrough in surgical technology, there is a new category of minimally invasive surgery for which you may be a candidate. Through the use of the da Vinci® Surgical System, surgeons are now able to offer an effective, minimally invasive option for complex surgical procedures. The da Vinci system allows major surgery to be performed through very small incisions. Benefits include less pain, a shorter hospital stay, faster return to normal daily activities – and the potential for better clinical outcomes.
With the da Vinci Surgical System, surgeons operate through just a few small incisions. The da Vinci System features a magnified 3D high-definition vision system and tiny wristed instruments that can bend and rotate far greater than the human wrist. As a result, da Vinci enables surgeons to operate with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control.
Minimally invasive da Vinci uses the latest in surgical and robotics technologies. da Vinci is beneficial for performing routine and complex surgery. Your surgeon is 100% in control of the da Vinci System, which translates his or her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside your body. da Vinci – taking surgery beyond the limits of the human hand.
