What Is Robotic Surgery?


Robot-assisted laparoscopic surgery entails the use of a surgical robot to facilitate the performance of complex operations without the need for a large incision. By combining robotics and state-of-the-art technology, surgeons can operate with greater dexterity and control than with traditional surgical approaches – ensuring the best possible outcome for each patient.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the da Vinci XI® Surgical System?


Surgeons using the da Vinci sit at a console where they have a three-dimensional view of their operating field. Below the screen, they work the master controls that guide the robotic arms, which manipulate the instruments and insert a tiny camera that enables them to see inside the patient. The surgical robot is unique because it provides 10x magnification, a three-dimensional view, and instrument arms that provide our surgeons with 7 degrees of freedom, allowing for movements that mimic a human wrist.
