More About Robot Technology Used in Hospital

Robotic and Computerized da Vinci™ Surgical System

In general, robotic surgery systems are designed to offer surgeons additional precision and control in complex minimally invasive procedures.
The da Vinci™ Surgical System from Intuitive Surgical, Inc., incorporates advancements in robotic and computer technology.

Minimally invasive surgical procedures are performed through small rather than large incisions and minimize trauma to tissue, muscles and vessels. Patient benefits are less blood loss, less scarring and faster recovery times.

Robotic systems like the da Vinci™ Surgical System enhance minimally invasive techniques in complex procedures. The da Vinci™ system allows the surgeon to view the surgical site in three-dimensions with 10 times magnification. Three surgical arms provide articulated movement that replicates the movement of the surgeon. (Click here to view video on Robotic Surgery)

Robotic assisted minimally invasive surgery may benefit patients as follows:

* Smaller incisions
* Reduced pain and trauma to the body
* Less blood loss and fewer transfusions
* Less risk of infection
* Shorter hospital stays
* Faster recovery and return to work
* Less scarring
