How does the da Vinci® Robotic Surgical System work?

The highly advanced da Vinci® Surgical System is designed to enhance your surgeon's capabilities with high-definition 3D vision and a greatly magnified view. da Vinci technology allows your doctor to perform complex procedures through a few tiny openings and to operate on areas of the body that are not easily accessible with usual surgical techniques.

Benefits of choosing a da Vinci® procedure include:

  • Smaller surgical incisions (typically 1–2 cm)
  • Reduced blood loss and need for transfusions
  • Less post-operative pain and discomfort
  • Less risk of infection
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Faster recovery and return to normal daily activities
