da Vinci Surgical System for Robotic Prostatectomy

The da Vinci® Surgical System is powered by state-of-the-art robotic technology. It provides the surgeon with four arms to operate. The system allows your surgeon’s hand movements to be scaled, filtered and translated into precise movements of micro-instruments within the operative site. The magnified, three-dimensional view the surgeon experiences enables him to perform precise robotic prostatectomy surgery and complex procedures through small surgical incisions.

The da Vinci® System enhances surgical capabilities by enabling the performance of complex surgeries through tiny surgical openings. The system cannot be programmed nor can it make decisions on its own. The da Vinci® System requires that every surgical mauveuver be performed with direct input from your surgeon.

The da Vinci® Surgical System has been successfully used in thousands of prostate cancer procedures world-wide. And The James is training doctors from around the world in its use.
