Introducing the da Vinci® XI Surgical System
One of the most advanced robots on the market for minimally invasive surgery is now available at Wise Health Surgical Hospital at Argyle.
The da Vinci® XI Surgical System is a highly advanced, surgical technology, allowing your surgeon to offer precise, minimally invasive surgery.
How does it work?
The surgeon sits at a console next to you and operates through small incisions using tiny instruments. Your surgeon’s hand movements are translated by the da Vinci® system in real-time, bending and rotating the instruments while performing the procedure. They also control a camera for viewing the surgical area in magnified, high-definition 3D.
What are the benefits?
For qualified candidates, this robot-assisted procedure offers numerous potential benefits over traditional open surgeries, including:
- Shorter hospital stay
- Less blood loss
- Fewer complications
- Less pain
- Faster recovery time
- Smaller incisions associated with minimal scarring.
The da Vinci® System represents the latest in surgical and robotics technologies. Your surgeon is 100% in control of the da Vinci® System at all times. The da Vinci® technology translates your surgeon’s hand movements into smaller, precise movements of tiny instruments inside your body.
Do all patients qualify for Robotic Surgery?
Robotic surgery isn’t an option for everyone. Please discuss with your doctor about the benefits and risks of robotic surgery and how it compares with other techniques, based on your specific circumstance.
