Only da Vinci ® overcomes the limitations of both traditional open surgery and conventional minimally invasive surgery.
The da Vinci ® System is a sophisticated robotic platform designed to expand the surgeon's capabilities – and for the first time – offer a minimally invasive option for major surgery.
The da Vinci® S™ Surgical System
With da Vinci, ® small incisions are used to introduce miniaturized wristed instruments and a high-definition 3D camera. Seated comfortably at the da Vinci ® console, your surgeon views a magnified, high-resolution 3D image of the surgical site.
At the same time, state-of-the-art robotic and computer technologies scale, filter and seamlessly translate your surgeon's hand movements into precise micro-movements of the da Vinci ®instruments.
The System cannot be programmed, nor can it make decisions on its own. Rather, the da Vinci ®System requires that every surgical maneuver be performed with direct input from your surgeon.

While clinical studies support the effectiveness of the da Vinci ® System when used in minimally invasive surgery, individual results may vary. Surgery with the da Vinci ® Surgical System may not be appropriate for every individual. Always ask your doctor about all treatment options, as well as their risks and benefits.
