By dramatically enhancing visualization, precision, control and dexterity, the da Vinci® System overcomes the limitations of traditional laparoscopic technology, helping physicians to perform complex surgery in a manner never before experienced. With enhanced surgical capabilities, physicians are now able to extend the benefits of minimally invasive surgery to the broadest possible range of patients.
The da Vinci® Robotic Surgical System provides considerable potential benefits to minimally invasive surgery when compared to standard laparoscopic approach. Such technology consists of a computer interface between the surgeon and the patient. In particular, the system restores the 3-D vision lost in the laparoscopic approach and enhances the ability of the surgeon to perform complex tasks in a laparoscopic environment. For most patients, minimally invasive procedures performed with the da Vinci Surgical System can offer numerous potential benefits over open abdominal surgery, including:
- Shorter hospital stay.
- Less pain and scarring.
- Less risk of wound infections.
- Less blood loss and fewer transfusions.
- Faster recovery.
- Quicker return to normal activities.
