About the Da Vinci Surgical System
The da Vinci surgical system gives surgeons an advanced set of instruments to use in performing robotic-assisted minimally invasive surgery. Surgeons perform procedures with da Vinci by using instruments that he or she guides via a console.
- The da Vinci system translates surgeons’ hand movements at the console in real time, bending and rotating instruments while performing the procedure.
- The tiny, wristed instruments move like human hands, but with a greater range of motion.
- The da Vinci surgical system delivers highly magnified, 3D, high-definition views of the surgical area.
- The small size of the instrument makes it possible for surgeons to operate through one or a few small incisions.
