Robotic surgery, or robot-assisted surgery, allows doctors to perform many types of complex procedures with more precision, flexibility and control than possible with conventional techniques. Robotic surgery is usually associated with minimally invasive surgery — procedures performed through tiny incisions. It is also, sometimes, used in certain traditional open surgical procedures.
Da VINCI XI/ SI:
The da Vinci Surgical System enables surgeons to perform delicate and complex operations through a few small incisions. The da Vinci System consists of several key components, including an ergonomically designed console, where the surgeon sits while operating, a patient-side cart, where the patient is positioned during surgery, interactive robotic arms, a 3DHD vision system, and proprietary EndoWrist instruments.
Da Vinci is powered by robotic technology that allows the surgeon’s hand movements to be scaled, filtered and translated into precise movements of the EndoWrist instruments, working inside the patient’s body.
