Da Vinci Surgery

With the da Vinci Surgical System, surgeons operate through just a few small incisions. The da Vinci System features a magnified 3D high-definition vision system and tiny wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human wrist. As a result, da Vinci enables your surgeon to operate with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control.

Minimally invasive da Vinci uses the latest in surgical and robotics technologies. da Vinci is beneficial for performing routine and complex surgery. Your surgeon is 100% in control of the da Vinci System, which translates his or her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside your body. da Vinci – taking surgery beyond the limits of the human hand.

Physicians have used the da Vinci System successfully worldwide in approximately 1.5 million various surgical procedures to date. da Vinci is changing the experience of surgery for people around the world.

Bariatric

Gastric Bypass

daVinci® Bariatric Surgery

If you are considering having bariatric surgery, you may be a candidate for minimally invasive da Vinci Surgery.

Why da Vinci Surgery?

Instead of the large abdominal incision used in open surgery, da Vinci surgeons make just a few small incisions – similar to traditional laparoscopy. The da Vinci System features a magnified 3D high-definition vision system and special wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human wrist. These features enable your surgeon to operate with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control.

As a result of da Vinci technology, da Vinci Surgery offers the following potential benefits:

  • Low rate of complications
  • Low rate of wound infection
  • Short hospital stay

As a result of da Vinci technology, da Vinci Bariatric Surgery offers the following potential benefits compared to traditional laparoscopy:

  • Much lower rate of gastrointestinal leaks
  • Lower risk of needing follow-up surgery
  • Lower risk of converting to open surgery
  • Reduced surgeon fatigue5 (due to the da Vinci Systemergonomics)

State-of-the-art da Vinci uses the latest in surgical and robotics technologies and is beneficial for performing complex surgery. Your surgeon is 100% in control of the da Vinci System, which translates his or her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside your body. da Vinci – taking surgery beyond the limits of the human hand.

Physicians have used the da Vinci System successfully worldwide in approximately 1.5 million various surgical procedures to date. da Vinci is changing the experience of surgery for people around the world.

Risks & Considerations Related to Bariatric Surgery

Potential risks of any bariatric procedure may include:

  • Fluid leak in gastrointestinal system
  • Abdominal pain
  • Intestinal blockage
  • Nausea with vomiting

In addition to the above risks, there are risks related to minimally invasive surgery, including da Vinci Bariatric Surgery, such as hernia (bulging tissue) at incision site. Additionally, morbidly obese patients are typically not candidates for da Vinci Surgery.

Urology

Prostateectomy

da Vinci® Prostatectomy

If you have been diagnosed with prostate cancer, and are considering surgery – ask your doctor about minimally invasive da Vinci Prostatectomy.

Why da Vinci Surgery?

With the da Vinci System, surgeons operate through a few small incisions instead of a large open incision – similar to traditional laparoscopy. The da Vinci System features a magnified 3D high-definition vision system and special wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human wrist. da Vincienables your doctor to operate with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control.

As a result of da Vinci technology, da Vinci Prostatectomy offers many potential benefits when compared to traditional open surgery, including:

  • More precise removal of cancerous tissue
  • Ability to perform nerve sparring surgery which enables:
  • Faster return of erectile (sexual) function: Studies show patients who are potent prior to da Vinci Surgery experience a faster return of erectile function than previously potent patients who have open surgery
  • Better chance for return of urinary continence: Recent studies show more patients with da Vinci Surgery have full return of urinary continence within 6 months as compared to patients having open surgery
  • Less blood loss
  • Less need for a blood transfusion
  • Less pain
  • Lower risk of complications
  • Lower risk of wound infection
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Less chance of hospital readmission
  • Less chance of needing follow-up surgery
  • Fewer days with catheter
  • Less risk of deep vein thrombosis (life-threatening condition where a blood clot forms deep in the body)
  • Faster recovery and return to normal activities

As a result of da Vinci technology, da Vinci Prostatectomy offers the following potential benefits compared to traditional laparoscopy:

  • More patients return to pre-surgery erectile function at 12-month checkup
  • Faster return of urinary continence
  • Lower risk of complications
  • Less blood loss and need for a transfusion
  • Less chance of nerve injury
  • Less chance of inuring the rectum
  • Shorter operation
  • Less risk of deep vein thrombosis (life-threatening condition where a blood clot forms deep in the body)
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Less chance of hospital readmission
  • Less chance of needing follow-up surgery

The da Vinci Surgical System is used in 4 out of 5 radical prostatectomies in the U.S.

Pyeloplasty

da Vinci® (Pyeloplasty) Surgery

If a doctor diagnoses you or a loved one with a urinary obstruction, surgery to remove the blockage may be recommended. This type of surgery is called pyeloplasty. Doctors remove the blockage in the urinary system and reattach the healthy part of the kidney to the healthy part of the ureter (tubes that carry urine from the kidneys to the bladder).

If surgery is recommended, ask your doctor about minimally invasive da Vinci Surgery.
