• Revolutionary true-to-life 3-D vision.
• Bright, crisp, high-resolution images.
• Immersive view of the surgical field.
The da Vinci S Surgical System enables physicians to perform surgery
in a manner never before experienced.
It seamlessly translates the surgeon’s hand movements, at
the console instrument controls, into corresponding micro-movements
of instruments positioned inside the patient. Overall, the system
can provide the surgeon with better visualization, dexterity, precision
and control than with open surgery, while enabling operation through
The system provides visualization of the target anatomy unlike
that ever experienced, with natural depth-of-field, enhanced
contrast and magnification for more accurate tissue identification
and tissue layer differentiation. Improved visualization also enables
surgeons to perform delicate tissue handling and dissection with
added precision – even
in confined spaces. This precision allows the surgeon to avoid
trauma to surrounding structures and tissue.
• Fingertip control of EndoWrist® instruments.
• Seven degrees of freedom – 90 degrees of articulation.
• Motion scaling and tremor reduction.
The da Vinci S Surgical System's tremor reduction, motion control
and proprietary EndoWrist instrumentation enhance ambidexterity
for precision and control beyond the capabilities of the human hand.
The surgeon can now move instruments with such accuracy that the
current definition of surgical precision is exceeded. Enhanced control
and intuitive motion enables more widespread use of advanced technique.
For example, two-handed suturing can become standard practice.
Added instrument range-of-motion enhances access and safety to the
surgery site — while operating in the confined space of the
closed chest, abdomen or pelvis. This enables surgeons to more
accurately and easily perform complex surgical maneuvers through
small “ports,” eliminating the need for large, traumatic
The da Vinci S Surgical System is the only surgical system designed
to allow surgeons to operate while seated, which is not only more
comfortable, but also may be clinically advantageous due to reduced
surgeon fatigue. The system’s design allows natural hand-eye
alignment at the surgeon's console, which provides better ergonomics
than traditional laparoscopic technology.
