RoboticTechnology

Minimally invasive surgical techniques allows surgeons to operate through small incisions or existing body openings, rather than use the large incisions required in traditional open surgery. In conventional laparoscopic minimally invasive procedures, a surgeon’s vision, access and range of motion are limited because of the way surgical instruments enter the body.

The daVinci System

The daVinci Surgical System helps alleviate that problem by allowing surgeons to maneuver into confined spaces within the body with 3D magnification while providing a greater range of motion and precision with specialized instruments.
