Developed one of the first robot-assisted, minimally invasive surgical system, to create innovative, robotic-assisted systems. Helping to empower doctors and hospitals to make surgery less invasive than an open approach
What is the da Vinci robot?
The robot gives surgeons more control than ever before and great accuracy which reduces the side effects of surgery and speeds up recovery times.
- Every 36 seconds, somewhere in the world, a surgeon uses a da Vinci Surgical System to bring a minimally invasive surgery to a patient.
- Over 5 million da Vinci surgeries completed by 2017
- 4,400 da Vinci Robots in hospitals globally
For over three decades, MIS has reduced trauma to patients by allowing selected surgeries to be performed through small ports rather than large incisions. MIS has been widely adopted for certain surgical procedures.
