The da Vinci Si Surgical System is designed to provide surgeons with enhanced capabilities, including high-definition 3D vision and a magnified view. Your doctor controls the da Vinci System, which translates his or her hand movements into small, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside of the body. Though this is often called a "robot," the da Vinci System cannot act on it own: Instead, the surgery is performed entirely by your physician.
Together, the da Vinci Si Surgical System allows doctors to perform complex procedures through just a few tiny openings. As a result, you may be able to get back to life faster without the usually recovery following major surgery.
St. Petersburg General Hospital utilizes 2 of the da Vinci® Surgical Systems, which provides surgeons with an alternative to both traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy, putting a surgeon's hands at the controls of a state-of-the-art robotic platform.
