Operating Room Nurses with the da Vinci Robot at UM BWMCThe da Vinci® Surgical System provides surgeons with an alternative to both traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy. The da Vinci® System enables surgeons to perform complex and delicate procedures through small incisions. The system features a magnified 3D high-definition vision system and tiny wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human wrist. As a result, this enables your surgeon to operate with great vision, precision, dexterity and control.

Your surgeon is 100% in control of the robotic system, which translates his or her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside your body. They are specially trained to perform these types of procedures. Surgeons use the system for gynecologic, thoracic and urologic minimally invasive procedures.
