Components of the da Vinci® Surgical System
This has four arms which hold the operating instruments and the camera. These follow the commands of the surgeon. Supporting surgical team members assist in installing the proper instruments, prepare the 1-cm ports in the patient, as well as supervise the laparoscopic arms and tools being utilized.
Why is it better for the surgeon?
With its 3-D view, the da Vinci Surgical System aids the surgeon to more easily identify vital anatomy such as the delicate nerves and blood vessels surrounding specific anatomy
The EndoWrist® Instruments provide the surgeon with the dexterity not available using conventional laparoscopic instruments to perform a delicate and precise surgical dissection, reconstruction or removal of specific tissue.
