Core Technology of the da Vinci® Surgical System

The da Vinci® Surgical System enables doctors to perform surgery in a manner never before experienced. With the surgeon sitting at a console a few feet from the patient, da Vinci translates that surgeon’s hand movements into corresponding micro-movements of instruments inside the patient’s body.

3D HD Vision

3D HD Vision

The 3D image in the console viewer allows surgeons to see anatomical structures in high definition and natural colors.

* Up to 10x magnification
* Bright, crisp, high-resolution image
* Immersive view of the surgical field

Intuitive Motion

EndoWrist® Instrumentation and Intuitive® Motion

Intuitive Surgical's patented EndoWrist® Instruments are designed to provide surgeons with natural dexterity while operating through small incisions.

* Endowrist® instruments with 7 degrees of freedom and a range of motion far greater than the human hand
* 7 degrees of freedom
* Range of motion far greater than the human hand
* Minimizes surgeon hand tremors

Ergonomics

surgeon Console Ergonomics

Using the da Vinci System, surgeons operate while seating at an ergonomically designed console just a few feet from the patient. The surgeon console provides for:

* Natural hand-eye positioning
* Comfortable seated posture
* Built-in microphone facilitates efficient communication in the OR

Serious complications may occur in any surgery, including da Vinci® Surgery, up to and including death. Examples of serious or life-threatening complications, which may require prolonged and/or unexpected hospitalization and/or reoperation, include but are not limited to, one or more of the following: injury to tissues/organs, bleeding, infection and internal scarring that can cause long-lasting dysfunction/pain. Risks of surgery also include the potential for equipment failure and/or human error. Individual surgical results may vary.

Risks specific to minimally invasive surgery, including da Vinci Surgery, include but are not limited to, one or more of the following: temporary pain/nerve injury associated with positioning; temporary pain/discomfort from the use of air or gas in the procedure; a longer operation and time under anesthesia and conversion to another surgical technique. If your doctor needs to convert the surgery to another surgical technique, this could result in a longer operative time, additional time under anesthesia, additional or larger incisions and/or increased complications.

Patients who are not candidates for non-robotic minimally invasive surgery are also not candidates for da Vinci® Surgery. Patients should talk to their doctor to decide if da Vinci Surgery is right for them. Patients and doctors should review all available information on non-surgical and surgical options in order to make an informed decision.
