Robotic Surgery

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.
