da Vinci® Surgical Services
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a condition that may require surgery, you owe it to yourself to learn about all of your options, including the most effective, least invasive surgical treatments available. The da Vinci Surgical System is changing the experience of 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 sits at a console and 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.
