Taking a Look at the Capabilities of the da Vinci Robotic Surgery System
Surgery is a branch of medicine that continues to evolve, resulting in treatment that is more effective and carries a lower risk. The da Vinci Robotically Assisted Surgery System is the next step in the development of better surgical techniques, and it facilitates minimally-invasive procedures with a record of over 8000 successful surgeries. Sunrise Hospital & Medical Center is the first to offer this technology over a broad range of medical specialties, and we are proud to discuss the abilities and benefits of this system.
Superior visibility at the surgical site
All da Vinci Surgeries are performed laparoscopically , meaning that they use a camera to establish a view of the area being operated on. This provides the surgeon with a high-definition view of the surgery that is seen from a screen at the control center where the surgeon is seated.
Precise movement and surgeon control
The da Vinci System is controlled by a surgeon who operates the surgical tools with an intuitive system that allows for optimal accuracy in every motion. The arms of the system feature standard surgical tools that can move with more delicacy and precision than any human hand. Together, the surgical arms and the surgeon’s control console create the safest possible surgeries with superior outcomes. It is important to note that the surgical arms cannot be programmed for movements, and they will only operate according to the surgeon’s commands. A second surgeon will be in the operating room during the surgery to view the procedure at the patient’s side.
