da Vinci Robotic Surgery
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a condition that may require surgery, you may want to ask your doctor about minimally invasive da Vinci® robotic surgery.
The da Vinci Surgical System gives surgeons an alternative to traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy. This system allows surgeons to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions with unmatched precision with this state-of-the-art robotic platform.
Possible benefits to surgery with the da Vinci Surgical System include:
- Significantly less pain
- Less blood loss
- Less scarring
- Shorter recovery time
- A faster return to normal daily activities
- In many cases, better clinical outcomes
Procedures that can use the da Vinci system include prostatectomy, hysterectomy, repair and more.
da Vinci Prostatectomy
Facing any kind of urologic surgery creates a great deal of anxiety for most men. Among your concerns is: “Will my body function normally following surgery?” Traditional open urologic surgery — in which large incisions are made to access the pelvic organs — has been the standard approach when surgery is warranted. Yet common drawbacks of this procedure include significant post-surgical pain, a lengthy recovery and an unpredictable, potentially long-term impact on continence and sexual function.
da Vinci Surgery is ideal for delicate urologic surgery. This includes prostatectomy, in which the target site is not only tightly confined but also surrounded by nerves affecting urinary control and sexual function.
da Vinci Hysterectomy
Traditional open gynecologic surgery, using a large incision for access to the uterus and surrounding anatomy, has for many years been the standard approach to many gynecologic procedures. Yet with open surgery can come significant pain, trauma, a long recovery process and threat to surrounding organs and nerves.
For complex hysterectomies and other gynecologic procedures, robot-assisted surgery with the da Vinci Surgical System may be an effective treatment option. Through tiny, 1- to 2-cm incisions, surgeons using the da Vinci System can operate with greater precision and control, minimizing the pain and risk associated with large incisions while increasing the likelihood of a fast recovery and excellent clinical outcomes.
