da Vinci Robotic Surgery Q & A

What is da Vinci robotic surgery?

The da Vinci surgical system is the world’s most advanced surgical robot. This technology enables Dr. Esiely to perform complex surgeries by making a few small incisions instead of the large ones required for traditional (open) surgeries.

Robotic surgery using da Vinci involves a high-definition 3D camera and four robotic arms with miniaturized instruments. These instruments can rotate more and have greater flexibility than the human hand, enabling Dr. Esiely to perform your procedure with increased control and precision.

To execute robot-assisted surgery, Dr. Esiely controls the da Vinci robotic system at a nearby control console while another surgeon is at your side. As Dr. Esiely performs the surgery at the controls, the da Vinci system translates his movements to the robotic instruments.

What are the benefits of da Vinci surgery?

There are several advantages to the da Vinci system, including:

  • Faster recovery
  • Shorter hospitalization
  • Reduced nerve damage
  • Less trauma to your body
  • Greater surgical precision
  • Fewer surgical complications
  • Less bleeding and smaller incisions
  • Decreased risk of scarring and infection

Because of the minimally invasive nature of da Vinci, you also experience less pain following your procedure, resulting in less medication and downtime.
