What is da Vinci® Surgery?
A Minimally Invasive Surgical Option
Using the da Vinci Surgical System, surgeons operate through just a few small cuts (incisions). The da Vinci System features a magnified 3D high-definition vision system and tiny wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human wrist. As a result, da Vinci enables your surgeon to operate with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control. Since 2000, over 2 million patients have had minimally invasive da Vinci
da Vinci® Gynecologic Surgery
When medication and non-invasive procedures are unable to relieve symptoms, surgery remains the accepted and most effective treatment for a range of gynecologic conditions. These include, but are not limited to, cervical and uterine cancer, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, uterine prolapse and menorrhagia or excessive bleeding.
Traditional open gynecologic surgery, using a large incision for access to the uterus and surrounding anatomy, has for many years been the standard approach to many gynecologic procedures. Yet with open surgery can come significant pain, trauma, a long recovery process and threat to surrounding organs and nerves. For women facing gynecologic surgery, the period of pain, discomfort and extended time away from normal daily activities that usually follows traditional surgery can understandably cause significant anxiety.
da Vinci® Hysterectomy
If you have been diagnosed with endometriosis, fibroids, heavy menstrual bleeding, pelvic prolapse or gynecologic cancer, your doctor may recommend a hysterectomy. If so, ask about minimally invasive da Vinci Surgery. Using da Vinci, your doctor operates through a few small incision. da Vinci features a magnified 3D HD vision system and special instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human wrist. These features enable your surgeon to operate with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control.
da Vinci® Urological Surgery
When medication and other non-surgical treatments are either unavailable or cannot relieve symptoms, surgery is the accepted treatment for a broad range of conditions that affect the male reproductive organs and the organs of the urinary tract. These conditions include, but are not limited to, prostate cancer, ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) obstruction, bladder and kidney cancer and vesicoureteral reflux.
da Vinci® Prostatectomy
If your doctor recommends prostate cancer surgery, you may be a candidate for da Vinci Surgery. Using the da Vinci System, your surgeon makes a few small incisions – similar to traditional laparoscopy. The da Vinci System features a magnified 3D HD vision system and tiny instruments that rotate far greater than the human wrist. These features enable your surgeon to operate with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control. As a result of da Vinci technology, da Vinci Prostatectomy offers many potential benefits over open surgery.
da Vinci Single-Site Cholecystectomy
With da Vinci Single-Site Surgery, doctors remove your gallbladder using state-of-the-art precision instruments. Patients who choose da Vinci Single-Site experience virtually scarless results, similar to single incision traditional laparoscopy.
