Potential Benefits of Robotic Surgery

Potential Benefits I da Vinci Robotic Surgery

In comparison to traditional open surgical procedures, the da Vinci® robotic surgery system results in exceptional benefits for patients, including:

  • Tiny one-centimeter incisions instead of one large incision
  • Fewer major post-op complications
  • Optimal recovery
  • Quick return to normal diet
  • Reduced appearance of scarring
  • Low blood loss
  • Shorter length of stay in hospital
  • Faster return to normal daily activities
  • Fewer complications
  • Less pain than an open surgery

The Most Advanced Robotic Surgery Platform in the World

The da Vinci® robotic surgery platform consists of two key components:

  • The surgeon's console, where the surgeon sits and controls the robot, and
  • The patient-side cart, where four robotic arms are connected to various surgical instruments that will come in contact with the patient

Sitting at the main console of the state-of-the-art da Vinci® robotic surgery platform, your da Vinci® surgeon sees vital anatomical structures with 3-D high-definition clarity magnified six times their normal size. This enhanced clarity of vision sets the stage for a more precise robotic surgery procedure.

The surgeon uses master controls to guide the delicate actions of the robotic surgical instruments. One of the major advantages of the da Vinci® surgery system is the tremendous range of motion of the robotic EndoWrist® instruments. They are designed with seven degrees of motion that mimic the motions of the human hand and wrist.

Da Vinci® robotic surgery essentially eliminates tremor, and maximizes dexterity, precision and control.
