da Vinci Surgery

Advanced Surgical Methods Available at Touro

If you have a condition or injury that requires surgery, you deserve to know about every option available to you. Many patients are not aware of the da Vinci® surgical system, which provides some of the most effective and least invasive surgical treatments possible.

The da Vinci system is an alternative to open surgery and laparoscopy, allowing surgeons to control a state-of-the-art robotic system that performs all incisions and surgical procedures. With this system, your surgeon can complete even the most complex and delicate procedures through tiny incisions with extreme precision.

The technology behind the system

The da Vinci Surgical System was created to enhance your surgeon’s capabilities, giving experienced surgeons the added benefits of 3D vision and magnification. Though often called a “robot,” the da Vinci console cannot act on its own and is operated entirely by your doctor. Your doctor controls the system, which translates his or her hand movements into more precise movements of small instruments at the site of the surgery.

Together, da Vinci’s technology allows your surgeon to perform complex surgeries through just a few small incisions. After you surgery with da Vinci, your recovery time may be faster and you will likely experience less pain than with traditional methods of surgery.

Benefits of the da Vinci System include:

  • Less pain after surgery
  • Less blood loss
  • Reduced scarring
  • Faster recovery
  • A faster return to daily routine
