About da Vinci® Surgical System
The da Vinci® Surgical System combines computer and robotic technologies to create a new category of surgical treatment: robotic-assisted laparoscopic, thoracoscopic, or endoscopic surgery.
By providing surgeons with enhanced capabilities, da Vinci® makes it possible to treat a broader range of conditions using a minimally invasive approach. This means that with da Vinci®, you can have major surgery with only a few tiny incisions. In addition, your surgeon can operate with better visualization, precision, dexterity, and control than during traditional surgery.
To date, da Vinci® has been used in everything from minimally invasive heart surgery to minimally invasive cancer surgery to treat conditions as diverse as prostate cancer, endometrial cancer, and mitral valve regurgitation.
