Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) allows physicians to perform many kinds of major surgery with less patient trauma and pain, minimal scarring, faster recovery and shorter hospital stays. Surgeries are performed through small incisions, which replace the large incisions needed for conventional open surgeries.
The use of robotics takes minimally invasive techniques into a new era, further minimizing the physical and emotional impact of surgery on patients. Robotically assisted MIS represents a third generation of surgery, one which builds upon the advances to open surgery introduced by MIS. Robotic technology takes surgery beyond the limits of the human hand, introducing precise, versatile instrument movement combined with three-dimensional visualization of the operative site.
The daVinci® Si-HD with 3D High Definition (HD) vision is the most advanced platform for minimally invasive surgery available today. By integrating computer-enhanced technology with the surgeon’s skill, the daVinci® Si-HD Surgical System enables surgeons to enhance healing and promote well-being by performing minimally invasive surgery in a manner never before experienced.
The daVinci® Si-HD Surgical System integrates 3D HD endoscopy and state-of-the-art robotic technology to virtually extend the surgeon’s eyes and hands into the surgical field. Only the daVinci® System enables new, minimally invasive options for complex surgical procedures.
