About the da Vinci System
The da Vinci surgical system enhances surgical capabilities by enabling the performance of complex surgeries through tiny surgical openings. The System cannot be programmed nor can it make decisions on its own. The da Vinci System requires that every surgical maneuver be performed with direct input from your surgeon.
The robot employs a unique camera system allowing the surgeon to enjoy an image at 10 times magnification. The robot's computer fuses the images of two small cameras to give the surgeon a binocular three-dimensional image on the screen. This accurate visualization allows a closer view of the muscles and nerves and makes precise cancer removal possible.
Benefits of Robotic Surgery May Include:
- Shorter hospital stay & less pain
- Less scarring & risk of infection
- Less blood loss & fewer blood transfusions
- Faster recovery & return to normal daily activities
