The da Vinci Surgical System is a state of the art robotic surgical system utilized by Aventura Hospital’s expert surgeons. This minimally invasive surgical system enables surgeons to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions, with unmatched precision.
The da Vinci Surgical System is controlled by the surgeon from a console located in the operating room only a few feet away from the patient. It is configured to equip the surgeon with a three-dimensional view, ten times that of the naked eye. It also enhances dexterity, allowing the surgeon to have precise movements with extraordinary control and range of motion. This means that da Vinci instruments can move in a more precise manner than a human hand.
The technological advancements provided by robotic-assisted surgery not only make the surgery easier to perform, but more importantly, provide a number of benefits to the patient. Patients who undergo robotic surgery experience less post-operative pain, decreased blood loss, a smaller rate of infection and a shorter length of stay in the hospital.
Aventura Hospital and Medical Center is currently using the da Vinci robot for urological, thoracic, gynecological and general surgical procedures. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a condition that may require surgery, you owe it to yourself to learn about all of your medical options, including the most effective, least invasive surgical treatments available.
