NATIONAL - MDTVNews.com - According to davinciprostatectomy.com, the da Vinci® Surgical System is powered by state-of-the-art robotic technology. The System allows the surgeon's hand movements to be scaled, filtered and translated into precise movements of micro-instruments within the operative site. The magnified, three-dimensional view the surgeon experiences enables him to perform precise surgery in complex procedures through small surgical incisions.
The da Vinci® System enhances surgical capabilities by enabling the performance of complex surgeries through tiny surgical openings. The System cannot be programmed nor can it make decisions on its own. The da Vinci® System requires that every surgical maneuver be performed with direct input from the surgeon.
The da Vinci® Surgical System has been successfully used in thousands of prostate cancer procedures worldwide.
