The future of surgery is here!

Robotic Surgery

Robotic surgery provides surgeons with enhanced capabilities, including high-definition 3D vision and a magnified view. The surgeon controls the system, which translates his or her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside the body. Although it is often called a “robot,” the da Vinci System cannot act on its own – surgery is performed 100% by the surgeon.

Single-Site Robotic Surgery

What is Single-Site Instrumentation for the da Vinci Si Surgical System?

Single-Site Instrumentation is a new operating platform attached to the da Vinci Si Surgical System that allows surgeons to remove the gallbladder from a single incision in the belly button. This new instrumentation is designed for the minimally invasive removal of the gallbladder, a procedure also known as a cholecystectomy.

What are the advantages?

Transumbilical (“belly button”) entry using the da Vinci Single-Site System is an outpatient procedure that’s minimally invasive, with no visible scar. Advantages of minimally invasive procedures and this instrumentation include:

Single incision of approximately one inch
Safe outcomes
Fast recovery times
Less pain
Minimal blood loss
Minimal scarring
Enhanced surgical precision, control and stability with 3D, high-definition visualization

How Does It Work?

The da Vinci Si Single-Site System uses state-of-the art robotic and computer technologies. The system consists of an ergonomically designed surgeon’s console and a separate unit with one robotic camera arm and two interactive robotic arms that have high-performance, miniature instruments attached to them. Patients lie on a table under the robotic arms.
