If your doctor recommends surgery, you may be a candidate for a very effective, minimally invasive procedure called da Vinci Surgery. This procedure uses state-of-the-art technology designed to help your doctor perform the most precise and least invasive surgery available today.
The da Vinci Surgical System is designed to provide surgeons with enhanced capabilities, including high-definition 3D vision and a magnified view.
Your doctor controls the da Vinci System which translates his hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside your body.
Though it is often called a “robot”, da Vinci cannot act on its own, instead, surgery is performed entirely by your doctor. Together, da Vinci technology allows your doctor to perform complex procedures through just a few tiny openings. As a result, you may be able to get back to your life without the usual recovery following major surgery.
The da Vinci System has been used successfully worldwide in hundreds of thousands of procedures to date and is used to treat kidney surgery, prostate surgery and pelvic prolapse surgery.
What is the daVinci Robot?
The daVinci Robot is a system that is attached to the laparoscopic trocars giving the possibility to the surgeon to perform a laparoscopic surgery with multiple advantages.
It is comprised of 3 main elements:
1. The patient bed side cart which contains the 3 or 4 arms that will be attached to the patient, a camera and 2 or 3 micro instruments according to the surgery performed.
2. The surgeon console where the surgeon sits and operates the robotic arms, he has a 3 dimensions High Definition view of his surgical field allowing him to perform precise and complex movements.
3. A tower that has the main computer and ancillary equipments needed like an energy source, the computer mainframe, cable connections, etc.

What are the Advantages of Robotic Surgery?
Robotic surgery is an advanced form of laparoscopic surgery. The advantages can be divided into advantages over the traditional “open” surgery: translating into less pain, better cosmesis ( small 8mm incisions instead of one large 8-10 cm incision) less blood loss and risk of blood transfusions and short hospital stays (less than 24 hrs compared to the 3 or 4 days of open surgery).
Advantages over laparoscopic surgery include: better ergonomics, more precise movements, endo-wrist movements and tremor reduction, improved 3D HD endoscopic view; all allowing the surgeon to perform the most complex surgeries without compromising on the minimally invasive approach.
