Minimally Invasive Robotic System Makes Surgery a Work of Art

By: | February 23rd, 2014

A state-of-the-art option has been developed to perform minimally invasive surgery.  The procedure is known as the da Vinci surgery.  Through a small incision, surgeons operate with the aid of the da Vinci System.

A magnifying high-definition 3D vision system is one of its features.  It also has tiny wristed instruments capable of bending and rotating far better than a human wrist.  Using the system gives the surgeon precision dexterity, enhanced vision, and control.

The latest robotic and surgical technologies are used in minimally invasive procedures.  The da Vinci System is used in both complex and routine surgeries.  The surgeon maintains 100 % control of the system.  As a surgeon moves his or her hand, movements are translated into smaller and more precise movements.  This takes surgery beyond human hand limits.

The da Vinci System has successfully been used in approximately 1.5 million surgical procedures around the world.  It has been used in the treatment of various cancers, gynecological problems, obesity, coronary issues and other organ disorders.

All top-ranked U.S. hospitals own at least one da Vinci System.  It’s the number one surgical option for hysterectomies and 80% of radical prostatectomies are performed with the da Vinci System.
