The da Vinci® System in Surgery
Using the da Vinci® System rather than more traditional methods offers several benefits. Instead of a large open incision, the size of the robotic device allows for smaller openings, and thus minimal scarring. It offers a 3D view of the area being operated on as well as advanced precision, vision and control in otherwise small or hard to reach areas. Due to the special instruments it also has the ability to bend and rotate at far greater angles than a human hand. Throughout the entire procedure, the surgeon is able to see everything and has 100% control of the machine.
The da Vinci® System has proven effective in treating a number of ailments, including:
- Gallbladder Disease
- Stomach Cancer
- Gastric Bypass
Besides minimal scarring, there are other less obvious advantages to opting for a surgery using the da Vinci System. Patients that undergo Vinci® System surgery often have less blood loss, a shorter recovery time and less reliance on post-operative pain medication.
