Because the anatomy of infants and children is so small, the da Vinci® Surgical System is a partiularly valuable technology for pediatric surgeons. The visualization tools along with the computer assisted robotic technology and tiny instruments give surgeons superior control and precise access during pediatric procedures.
Da Vinci® Pediatric Surgeries
Common pediatric robotic procedures include neonatal and pediatric gastrointestinal surgery and thoracic surgery for tumors and lung diseases. These include procedures for acid reflux and achalasia, as well as splenectomies (removal of the spleen) and nephrectomies (removal of the kidney).
