The da Vinci Robotic Surgical System is designed to provide surgeons with enhanced capabilities, including high-definition 3D vision and a magnified view. The surgeon controls the robot as it translates his or her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside the patient’s body.
Though it is often called a robot, it cannot act on its own. Instead, the surgery is performed with unmatched precision entirely by the surgeon. Together, the robotic technology, highly skilled surgeon and surgical team perform complex procedures through just a few tiny openings.
