Meet the da Vinci Surgical System

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.

WHY GO ROBOTIC?
Smaller incisions

da Vinci enables a surgical procedure to be performed through just a few small incisions.

Human-guided

da Vinci is not “automated” surgery. The surgeon is 100% in control of the system at all times.

Greater precision

DaVinci’s unique range of motion and precision controls can do what human hands cannot.

Shorter hospital stays

Average hospital stays are generally much shorter than conventional open surgery procedures.

Faster recovery time

Smaller incisions mean less blood loss during surgery, and quicker healing and less pain after.

Minimized scarring

Some procedures can even be performed through the belly button, producing virtually no scars.

Is Robotic Surgery Right for You?

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.

Conditions treated by robotic surgery

While robotic-assisted surgery may seem rather futuristic, it has actually been FDA approved for gynecologic surgery since 2005, and its use in these procedures continues to grow exponentially. In fact, today, da Vinci Hysterectomy is the #1 minimally invasive hysterectomy performed in the U.S. Common gynecologic da Vinci Surgery procedures include:
  • Hysterectomy
  • Gynecologic malignancies
  • Endometriosis resection
  • Myomectomy
  • Sacrocolpopexy
  • Uterine prolapse
  • Chronic pelvic pain
  • Adnexal surgery
Most general surgical procedures in the abdominal area can be effectively and safely conducted robotically, and as a result, general robotic surgery procedures continue to grow steadily. In fact, over 750,000 da Vinci Surgery procedures were performed in 2016. These include common procedures such as:
  • Bariatric Surgery (gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy)
  • Heller Myotomy (surgery for patients with achalasia – swallowing disorder)
  • Gastrectomy (stomach cancer surgery)
  • Hernia Repair
  • Cholecystectomy (gallbladder surgery)
  • Nissen Fundoplication (acid reflux surgery)
  • Pancreatectomy (Benign or Malignant)
