da Vinci® Robotic Assisted Surgical System
Thanks to a breakthrough surgical technology, there is a new category of minimally invasive robotic assisted 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.
Since the introduction of the da Vinci System more than five years ago, the da Vinci System has been used successfully in tens of thousands of procedures. Its safety and efficacy have been documented in hundreds of clinical publications. The literature supporting da Vinci's use is extensive, covering all surgical specialties where the System is used.
A New Category in Minimally Invasive Surgery
Thanks to the latest evolution in surgical technology, physicians now have an effective alternative to traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy that may allow them to provide patients with the best of both approaches. With the assistance of the da Vinci® Surgical System, surgeons can now operate using only 1-2 cm incisions, but with greater precision and control than ever before.
da Vinci can help surgeons minimize the pain and risk associated with surgery while increasing the likelihood of a fast recovery and excellent clinical outcomes.
For most patients, da Vinci Robotic Assisted Surgery offers numerous potential benefits over open surgery, including:
- A faster recovery
- A shorter hospital stay
- A less-invasive procedure
- Smaller incisions
- Less pain, scarring and blood loss
- Fewer complications
- Greater surgical precision, which in turn means more accurate removal of cancer
As with any surgical procedure, these benefits cannot be guaranteed, as surgery is both patient- and procedure-specific.
