Benefits of Da Vinci Robotic SurgeryManufactured by Intuitive Surgical in 2000, the Da Vinci robotic surgical system was approved for the treatment of health conditions such as prostate cancer, cardiac valve repair, and gynecological problems during the same year.

However, the Da Vinci surgical system has been evolving since the Food and Drug Administration approved it for medical employment, now being able to treat a wider range of health issues and diseases.

Robotic surgery is performed using the Da Vinci system, which is minimally invasive.

In 2012, the Da Vinci surgical system was used to perform over 200,000 procedures throughout the country. In the hospitals of the United States, there are nearly 5,000 Da Vinci surgical systems. The Da Vinci surgical system usually entails four interactive robotic arms whose movements are permanently controlled by the surgeon with the use of a console that is in the same room as the patient.

The arms of the system, which can act as scalpels, scissors, bovies, or graspers, cannot move by themselves, which means that the risk of medical errors is almost nonexistent. The Da Vinci surgical system can be used for the treatment of both pediatric and adult health problems.

Some of the most noteworthy benefits of undergoing robotic surgery with the use of the Da Vinci system are the following:

  • better surgical precision
  • greater range of motion
  • enhanced dexterity
  • improved visualization
  • greater access to hard-to-reach areas
  • enhanced ability to spare healthy tissue
  • reduced pain
  • lower risk of infection or complications
  • less blood loss
  • a shorter hospital stay
  • reduced scarring
  • a faster return to normal activities
