Historically, most common surgical procedures have been “open” procedures, meaning they are performed through one large incision. By contrast, the da Vinci Surgery System – considered the world’s most advanced surgical robot – enables surgeons to perform minimally-invasive laparoscopic surgery through a few small incisions. More than 3 million successful surgical procedures have been performed using da Vinci, with more occurring every day, across the country.
da Vinci enables a surgical procedure to be performed through just a few small incisions.
da Vinci is not “automated” surgery. The surgeon is 100% in control of the system at all times.
DaVinci’s unique range of motion and precision controls can do what human hands cannot.
Average hospital stays are generally much shorter than conventional open surgery procedures.
Smaller incisions mean less blood loss during surgery, and quicker healing and less pain after.
Some procedures can even be performed through the belly button, producing virtually no scars.
Depending on your unique needs and condition, robotic surgery may be a great option to consider, and below are some of the most common surgical procedures that are now routinely performed robotically across the country. But as with any form of surgery, you should talk with your physician about the potential benefits and risks of robotic surgery to determine if it is the best solution for your individual needs.
