da Vinci Robotic Surgery
The da Vinci Surgical System is designed to provide surgeons with enhanced capabilities, including high-definition 3D vision and a magnified view. Your doctor controls the da Vinci System, which translates his or her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside your body. Though it is often called a “robot,” da Vinci cannot act on its own: Instead, the surgery is performed entirely by your doctor.
Together, da Vinci technology allows your doctor to perform complex procedures through just a few tiny openings. As a result, you may be able to get back to life faster without the
usual recovery following major surgery.
The da Vinci System has been used successfully worldwide in hundreds of thousands of procedures to date.
For most patients, da Vinci surgery offers numerous potential benefits over open surgery including:
- Significantly less pain
- Minimal blood loss
- Less scarring
- Quicker recovery
- Return to normal activities
- Better patient outcome and satisfaction
If your doctor recommends surgery to treat your prostate cancer, you may be a candidate for a very effective, less invasive surgical procedure called da Vinci Prostatectomy. This procedure uses a state-of-the-art surgical system designed to help your doctor perform the most precise and least invasive prostatectomy available today.
While no woman wants to face surgery, today the vast majority of gynecologic conditions - from endometriosis to uterine fibroids, heavy menstrual bleeding to cancer - can now be treated effectively without a big incision. With da Vinci Surgery, a hysterectomy requires only a few small incisions, so you can get back to life faster - within days rather than the usual weeks required with traditional surgery.
