da Vinci Surgical System

What is the DA VINCI SURGICAL SYSTEM?

Robotic surgeons at Saint Thomas Health utilize the da Vinci surgical system which employs advanced, robotic, computer and optical technologies to assist with your operation. The da Vinci instruments allow your surgeon to make small, precise movements inside your body.


The system offers features designed to provide the benefits, including:
  • Surgeon control and ergonomic comfort
  • Patient safety
  • OR efficiency
  • Integrated technology and data

How Can it Help Me?

Robotic surgery utilizing da Vinci technology is less invasive than what is referred to as “open” surgery. This minimally invasive option allows potential benefits, including:
  • A shorter hospital stay
  • Less blood loss
  • Fewer complications
  • Less need for narcotic pain medicine
  • A faster recovery
  • Smaller incisions associated with minimal scarring
