da Vinci® Surgical System

The da Vinci® Surgical System is powered by leading-edge robotic technology. It allows surgeons to perform major surgeries by making only small incisions using four robotic arms. The magnified, 3-D view the surgeon experiences enables him or her to operate with incredible precision in complex procedures, including prostate, open-heart, gynecologic, and urologic surgeries.

Da Vinci's camera magnification can enlarge a surgical suture's thread-like appearance to the size of a rope. The camera allows surgeons to see more than they could if they were to do more invasive surgery.

Because surgeons make only small incisions, patients benefit in a number of ways:

  • Reduced pain and discomfort after surgery
  • Reduced blood loss
  • Reduced surgical incisions
  • Faster recovery and return to normal daily activities
  • Reduced cost
  • Reduced hospital stay

Baptist DeSoto surgeons have been specially trained to use the da Vinci technology, and have met all the clinical and experience criteria to perform safe and effective robotic surgery.
