JSASA For da Vinci Robotic Surgery
Doctors often recommend surgery when medicine and lifestyle changes cannot ease your abdominal or gastrointestinal symptoms. If your doctor recommends surgery, learning about all surgical options can help you to make the best decision for your situation. Surgery is often an effective treatment for abdominal and GI conditions, but traditional open surgery with a large incision is highly invasive. Open surgery may also require a long hospital stay and lengthy recovery.
Fortunately, there are minimally invasive surgery options. The most common is laparoscopic surgery (laparoscopy). Surgeons make a few small incisions and insert a tiny camera and long-handled instruments to reach inside your abdomen. The camera transmits images onto a video monitor in the operating room to guide surgeons as they operate. Then there is robotic surgery.
What is da Vinci robotic surgery?
da Vinci surgery is another minimally invasive option for patients facing abdominal or gastrointestinal surgery. Instead of a large abdominal incision, da Vinci surgeons make a few small incisions similar to traditional laparoscopy. However, da Vinci features a magnified, 3D, high-definition vision system and special wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater and more precisely than a human wrist. As a result, your da Vinci general surgeon can operate with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control.
State-of-the-art da Vinci uses the latest in surgical and robotic technologies and is beneficial for performing complex surgeries. Your general surgeon is 100% in control of the da Vinci System.
