Laparoscopic Robotic Surgery
One of the instruments is a laparoscope – a thin tube with a tiny camera and light at the end. The camera sends images to a video monitor in the operating room to guide doctors during surgery. The surgeon is 100% in control of the da Vinci System at all times.
The da Vinci® Surgical System enables surgeons to perform operations through a few small incisions and features several key features, including:
- Magnified vision system that gives surgeons a 3D HD view inside the patient’s body
- Ergonomically designed console where the surgeon sits while operating
- Patient-side cart where the patient is positioned during surgery
- Wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human hand
The da Vinci System has brought minimally invasive surgery to more than 3 million patients worldwide. da Vinci technology – changing the experience of surgery for people around the world.
Da Vinci Technology
Advanced 3D-HD visualization, which provides a highly magnified, immersive view of the operative field, utilizing micro instruments for accuracy and precision.
Intuitive® motion technology, which preserves natural eye-hand-instrument alignment.
Intuitive instrument control instrumentation, which offer dexterity and range of motion far greater than even the human hand.
The Firefly Fluorescence Imaging Vision System enables surgeons to use a special video camera and glowing dye to view blood flowing in vessels, and tissue or bile moving through ducts during minimally invasive surgical procedures. When a surgeon uses the Firefly camera, healthy structures appear green but those without blood flow appear gray.
The da Vinci Fluorescence Imaging Vision System is intended to provide real-time endoscopic visible and near-infrared fluorescence imaging. The da Vinci Fluorescence Imaging Vision System enables surgeons to perform minimally invasive surgery using standard endoscopic visible light as well as visual assessment of vessels, blood flow and related tissue perfusion, and at least one of the major extrahepatic bile ducts (cystic duct, common bile duct and common hepatic duct), using near infrared imaging.
The DaVinci Robotic Surgical System cam be used for laparoscopic procedures including Bariatric surgery, Revisional Bariatric surgery, Anti-reflux Surgery and many other general surgical procedures.
In addition, specific benefits of Advanced Laparoscopic Robotic-Assisted Procedures are as follows:
- Revisional Bariatric Surgery: Enhanced 3D view and enhanced laparoscopic suturing capability.
- Cholecystectomy (Gall Bladder Removal): Enhanced 3D visualization of gallbladder and bile ducts utilizing Firefly technology for better identification of critical structures during surgery.
- Incisional, Ventral, and Inguinal Hernias: Allows for panoramic 3D view and easy identification of contralateral inguinal hernia defects that may go unnoticed, enhanced sewing capability of hernia defects, and decreased potential for chronic groin pain with inguinal hernias.
