While surgery is generally the most effective treatment option for many conditions, traditional open surgery with a large incision has its drawbacks – pain, trauma, a long recovery time and a risk of infection.

Fortunately, less invasive options are available to many patients facing surgery. The most common of these is laparoscopic surgery, in which small incisions are used. Laparoscopy is effective for many routine procedures, but due to the instruments used, it has certain limitations when more complex surgery is required.

Thanks to the latest evolution in surgical technology, doctors now have a safe and effective alternative to traditional open and laparoscopic surgery – da Vinci Surgery. The da Vinci Surgical System enables surgeons to operate through a few tiny incisions with dramatically enhanced vision, precision and control.
State-of-the-art da Vinci Surgery helps surgeons to minimize the pain and risk associated with traditional surgery, while increasing the chances for a fast recovery and excellent clinical outcomes.

As with any surgery, these benefits cannot be guaranteed since surgery is specific to each patient, condition and procedure. It is important to talk to your doctor about all treatment options, including the risks and benefits. This information can help you make the best decision for your situation.
