With the use of the da Vinci Si Surgical System surgeons can perform advanced minimally invasive surgeries with the help of robotic arms. This provides an alternative to traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy, allowing even the most complex and delicate procedures to be completed through small incisions with unmatched precision and accuracy.
The latest in robotic technology, the da Vinci Si consists of four, thin robotic arms that are inserted into strategically placed small incisions (just one or two centimeters long). The surgeon operates from a seated console using hand and foot controls to maneuver the robotic arms. The console provides the surgeon with a 3-dimentional, high definition view of the surgical field - a better view than allowed with an open surgery. This new cutting edge technology truly replicates the experience of open surgery by preserving natural eye-hand-instrument alignment and intuitive instrumental control for the surgeon.
