da Vinci® Procedures
When facing surgery, regardless of the condition, your primary concern is determining which surgeon and hospital will give you the best chance for the best possible outcome. Secondly, you want a surgical experience that will be the least disruptive to your everyday life.
Enter da Vinci.
The da Vinci® Surgical System combines computer and robotic technologies to create a new category of surgical treatment, robotic-assisted laparoscopic, thoracoscopic or endoscopic surgery. By providing surgeons with enhanced capabilities, the da Vinci Surgical System makes it possible to treat a broader range of conditions using a minimally invasive approach. This means that with da Vinci, you can have major surgery with only a few tiny incisions. In addition, your surgeon can operate with better visualization, precision, dexterity and control than possible using traditional surgical approaches.
Clinical studies suggest that the extended capabilities provided by the da Vinci System may help surgeons provide better clinical outcomes than conventional open and minimally invasive surgery allow – for example, better cancer control and a lower incidence of impotence and incontinence with da Vinci Prostatectomy.1
To date, da Vinci has been used in everything from minimally invasive heart surgery to minimally invasive cancer surgery, to treat conditions as diverse as prostate cancer, endometrial cancer, morbid obesity and mitral valve regurgitation.
In short, the da Vinci Surgical System combines robotics and surgical technology as never before, enabling your surgeon to provide the most effective and least invasive treatment option available for a wide range of complex conditions.
