The da Vinci® System is an improvement over conventional laparoscopy, in which the surgeon operates while standing and uses hand-held, long-shafted instruments that cannot bend or rotate. With conventional laparoscopy, the surgeon must look up and away from the instruments to a nearby video monitor to see an image of the target anatomy.
The System also extends our surgeon’s capabilities to provide these significant benefits:
- Enhanced 3-D Visualization
- Improved Dexterity
- Greater Surgical Precision
- Improved Access
- Increased Range of Motion
- Reproducibility – Enhances the surgeon’s ability to repetitively perform technically precise maneuvers such as endoscopic suturing and dissection.
