The Leading-edge Technology of the da Vinci Surgical Robots

A cornerstone to our Minimally Invasive Surgery program is the sophisticated technology of the da Vinci® Robotic Surgical System.

With da Vinci robot-assisted surgery, our surgeons are able to perform less invasive surgery with a greater level of precision, and an increased range of motion, using delicate instrumentation to enhance their skills. Though it is often called a "robot," the da Vinci cannot act on its own—the surgery is performed entirely by your surgeon.

 

Expertise of the NWH Robotic Surgeons

Your surgeon controls the da Vinci System, which enables increased range of motion, improved dexterity, and enhanced visualization that allow surgeons to perform procedures that weren't previously possible through other techniques. The da Vinci System utilizes high-definition 3D imaging that provides surgeons with a magnified view and greater visualization of the procedure. Additional benefits of robot-assisted surgery include:

  • Less post-operative pain
  • A lower risk of infection
  • Minimal scarring
  • Decreased blood loss
  • Faster recovery times
  • Earlier discharge from hospital
