Unlike a conventional operating table, the da Vinci system does not require the surgeon to remain in a standing position for a long period of time. Instead, it allows the surgeon to be seated, preventing fatigue caused by standing. The surgeon can thus perform a complicated surgery in optimal physical condition. Furthermore, the system makes only a few small incisions on the patient, substantially reducing the patient’s recovery time, risk of infection, and pain.

The da Vinci® Surgical System
- The da Vinci Surgical System is currently the most advanced robotic surgical system used for minimally invasive surgery. In the past decade, it has been widely applied in the United States, Europe, and Asia, assisting in more than two-hundred thousand operations each year.
- The robotic arms of the system, which are controlled by a computerized microadjustment system, give surgeons finer movement control and eliminate undesirable hand shaking. This enables surgeons to overcome the difficulties of conventional surgical practice and operate in more complex environments and with precision and flexibility. Moreover, the enlarged three-dimensional (3D) vision of the system and its robotic arms, which were developed on the basis of real human arms, enable surgeons to perform highly precise incisions, restorations, and suturing without damaging crucial nerves, blood vessels, and organs, thus minimizing the risks of operations.
- Because the da Vinci system is under the full control of a surgeon, every decision and movement should be made by the most experienced surgeon present. In the United States, the da Vinci system has become the preferred method for surgical operations in such fields as urology, gynecology, general surgery, otolaryngology, and cardiac surgery. Unlike the conventional open surgery, da Vinci–assisted surgery does not require a large wound opening, which can have numerous complications and take a long time to heal. This is why many patients actively select and seek out the da Vinci system for their operations and treatment.
- Patients who undergo da Vinci–assisted operations are generally satisfied with the results, and many are surprised by how positive the experience is; not only are they spared the pains and discomfort of conventional open surgery or laparoscopic surgery, they also have a much shorter convalescence. Improved postoperation recovery and care quality enable patients to quickly return to normal life.
