Surgery Enabled by da Vinci

You've just been diagnosed with a condition requiring surgery. Until very recently your options included traditional surgery with a large open incision or laparoscopy, which uses small incisions but is typically limited to very simple procedures.

Thanks to a breakthrough surgical technology, there is a new category of minimally invasive surgery for which you may be a candidate. It is an effective, minimally invasive alternative to both open surgery and laparoscopy. Through the use of the da Vinci.® Surgical System, surgeons are now able to offer a minimally invasive option for complex surgical procedures.


Imagine major surgery performed through the smallest of incisions. Imagine having the benefits of a definitive treatment but with the potential for significantly less pain, a shorter hospital stay, faster return to normal daily activities – as well as the potential for better clinical outcomes.

With the da Vinci. Surgical System, surgeons and hospitals are re-writing accepted standards for surgical care. da Vinci. is changing the experience of surgery.


When facing surgery, regardless of the condition, your primary concern is determining which surgeon and hospital will give you the best chance for the best possible outcome. Secondly, you want a surgical experience that will be the least disruptive to your everyday life.

Enter da Vinci.

The da Vinci. Surgical System combines computer and robotic technologies to create a new category of surgical treatment, robotic-assisted laparoscopic, thoracoscopic or endoscopic surgery. By providing surgeons with enhanced capabilities, the da Vinci. Surgical System makes it possible to treat a broader range of conditions using a minimally invasive approach. This means that with da Vinci., you can have major surgery with only a few tiny incisions. In addition, your surgeon can operate with better visualization, precision, dexterity and control than possible using traditional surgical approaches.

Clinical studies suggest that the extended capabilities provided by the da Vinci. System may help surgeons provide better clinical outcomes than conventional open and minimally invasive surgery allow – for example, better cancer control and a lower incidence of impotence and incontinence with da Vinci. Prostatectomy.

To date, da Vinci. has been used in everything from minimally invasive heart surgery to minimally invasive cancer surgery, to treat conditions as diverse as prostate cancer, endometrial cancer, morbid obesity and mitral valve regurgitation.

In short, the da Vinci. Surgical System combines robotics and surgical technology as never before, enabling your surgeon to provide the most effective and least invasive treatment option available for a wide range of complex conditions.
