da Vinci Leading the way in health care technology

Today, complex conditions such as cancer, uterine prolapse, fibroids, heart disease and more can be treated minimally invasively with da Vinci robotic-assisted surgery.

This approach uses a robotic surgical system that provides your surgeon with better vision, precision and control. It requires only a few small incisions, so you can get back to your life faster, without the usual recovery following major surgery. 

The da Vinci® Si™ advanced level of technology takes surgery beyond the limits of the human hand. The system has several unique features designed to provide additional clinical benefits and efficiency in the operating room for the physicians who are utilizing the rapidly emerging technology.

This Ted Talks presentation with Catherine Mohr gives an in-depth look into robotic-assisted surgery.
