About da Vinci

The da Vinci ® Surgical System
Only da Vinci ® overcomes the limitations of both traditional open surgery and conventional minimally invasive laparoscopic 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.

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.

This is not a automated unassisted robot,  the System cannot be programmed, nor can it make decisions on its own. Rather, the da Vinci ® System requires that every surgical
procedure be performed with direct maneuvers and input from your surgeon.

While clinical studies support the effectiveness of the da Vinci ® System when used in minimally invasive surgery, individual results may vary. Surgery with the da Vinci ® Surgical System may not be appropriate for every individual. Always ask your doctor about all treatment options, as well as their risks and benefits.
