Robotic Surgery Demonstration Using da Vinci Surgical System
With the da Vinci Surgical System, surgeons operate through just a few small cuts or incisions. The da Vinci System offers a magnified 3D high-definition vision system and tiny wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human hand. As a result, da Vinci enables your surgeon to operate with enhanced vision, precision and control. Thus, the operation is more likely to be successful.
The da Vinci System represents the latest in surgical and robotics technologies. Your surgeon is 100% in control of the da Vinci System at all times. da Vinci technology translates your surgeon’s hand movements into smaller, precise movements of tiny instruments inside your body.
