Precision is critical when it comes to operating on the delicate prostate and urological areas. The da Vinci Robotic Surgical System™ gives surgeons the precision and control they need -- and a less invasive method of surgery -- that is proven to speed healing and reduce recovery. Da Vinci makes operating in tightly confined areas of the urological system possible for medical conditions such as prostate, bladder or kidney cancer and ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) obstruction.
The da Vinci®Surgical System puts a surgeon's hands at the controls of a state-of-the-art robotic platform, where they operate while viewing a high-definition 3D image of the surgical area. As the surgeon's fingers grasp the master controls, the system seamlessly translates hand, wrist and finger movements into precise real-time movements of surgical instruments inside the patient.
Da Vinci® gives surgeons all the tools they need to offer patients many benefits, including: Less pain and blood loss Fewer complications Less scarring A shorter hospital stay Faster return to normal daily activities
