When medication and non-invasive procedures are unable to alleviate symptoms, surgery is the most effective treatment for a large range of conditions. Robotic surgery is the most advanced technology for minimally invasive surgeries in the world today. Last year, over 400,000 surgeries were performed using the da Vinci Robotic System.
Once in place the robotic surgery system translates the surgeon’s movements outside the body to the instruments inside the body. This innovative technology provides the surgeon with superior visibility and precision.
About the da Vinci Surgical System
The equipment allows the doctor to see and reach places that are otherwise very difficult to manage with a more traditional “open” or invasive surgery. It also reduces the operation time and allows the doctor to work more efficiently.
The equipment includes an ergonomic physician’s console, where the doctor sits and views the surgical area through a high definition 3D vision system. Here, the surgeon makes precisely controlled micro movements through the master controls that translate to the robotic arms.
The computer processors of the system not only enable the doctor’s movements, but also perform thousands of safety checks throughout the procedure to ensure accuracy and safety to the patient. The da Vinci Surgical System is a huge advancement in surgery because of the new level of technical capability that enables minimally invasive surgery for more complex procedures.
