While our da Vinci robots are indeed impressive technology, it’s the surgeons that are actually performing the operation. These highly trained experts have complete hands-on control of the instrumentation during a procedure. All of our robotic surgeons have undergone advanced training with the da Vinci system. And they are required to perform a robotic procedure every 30-60 days to ensure patients receive world-class surgical expertise.
Using a wrist-based interface, the da Vinci system accurately translates the surgeon’s own hand motions into precise, fluid movement of the robotic instrumentation during a procedure. The system provides a highly magnified, three-dimensional view inside the patient’s body during surgery. An ergonomically designed console — located just a few feet from the patient — offers the surgeon full control of the robotic instrumentation. Advanced software even minimizes the effects of hand tremors on instrument movements. Additionally, a fluorescence-imaging feature allows a real-time visual assessment of the completed operation.
