The da Vinci Surgical System is a sophisticated robotic platform designed to expand the surgeon’s capabilities and offer a state-of-the-art minimally invasive option for major surgery
With da Vinci, small incisions are used to insert 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 inside your body.
At the same time, the latest robotic and computer technologies scale, filter and seamlessly translate your surgeon’s hand movements into precise micro-movements of the da Vinci instruments.
“Although it is called a “robot”, the da Vinci System cannot move or operate on its own; your surgeon is 100% in control.”
If you think about it, this little robot doctor can be the first of many medical advancements that will allow for surgeries to have less of an impact on someone’s body than before. Beyond that, maybe it could someday be used in surgeries for our sweet, delicate and tiny pets.
