Discover the da Vinci Surgical System at Houston Healthcare

What is the da Vinci Surgical System?

Experience precision and control with the da Vinci robotic surgical system. This advanced technology provides surgeons with high-definition imaging, magnified and enhanced for unmatched accuracy and control. Seated at an adjustable console, surgeons control four robotic arms with a full range of motion, navigating behind and around tissues and nerves.

How does it work?

The da Vinci surgical system equips your surgeon with a sophisticated set of tools for conducting robotic-assisted, minimally invasive procedures. The term “robotic” often misleads people. Robots don’t perform surgery. Instead, your surgeon utilizes the da Vinci instruments guided through a console.

The da Vinci system seamlessly translates your surgeon's hand movements at the console in real time, facilitating the bending and rotation of instruments during the procedure. These instruments, with a design mirroring the human hand but offering an extended range of motion, contribute to precise maneuvers. The da Vinci vision system enhances the experience by providing highly magnified, 3D high-definition views of the surgical area.

How can the da Vinci Surgical System help me?

In comparison to what is known as 'open surgery,' Da Vinci Surgery offers a less invasive technique. The incisions made by your surgeon in Da Vinci Surgery are much smaller than those in open surgery, thus categorizing it as a form of "minimally invasive surgery." Studies on Da Vinci Surgery have highlighted several benefits when contrasted with open surgery:

  • Less pain during recovery
  • Minimal blood loss
  • Fewer complications
  • Lower risk of infection
  • Reduced scarring
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Faster return to normal activities
  • Fewer hospital readmissions
