da Vinci Urologic Procedures

The da Vinci System is used by surgeons worldwide for prostatectomy and other urologic procedures. da Vinci is a minimally invasive approach that uses the latest in surgical and robotics technologies and is beneficial for performing complex surgery.

da Vinci is a state-of-the-art surgical system that features a magnified 3D high-definition vision system and special wristed instruments designed to take surgery beyond the limits of the human hand.

Your surgeon is 100% in control of the da Vinci System, which translates his or her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside your body.

Physicians have used the da Vinci System successfully worldwide in approximately 1.5 million various surgical procedures to date. da Vinci is changing the experience of surgery for people around the world.
