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
