The da Vinci® Surgical System enables surgeons to perform operations through a few small incisions and features several key features, including:
Magnified vision system that gives surgeons a 3D HD view inside the patient’s body
Ergonomically designed console where the surgeon sits while operating
Patient-side cart where the patient is positioned during surgery
Wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human hand
The da Vinci System is powered by robotic technology that allows the surgeon’s hand movements to be translated into smaller, precise movements of tiny instruments inside the patient’s body. One of the instruments is a laparoscope – a thin tube with a tiny camera and light at the end. The camera sends images to a video monitor in the operating room to guide doctors during surgery. The surgeon is 100% in control of the da Vinci System at all times.
