The Da Vinci Si is the most advanced surgical robot available, and we use it in all our operations to give our patients the best results possible.
Developed by Intuitive Surgical in California, the Da Vinci Si robotic surgical system allows a skilled surgeon to make even more precise movements than usual with a wider range of rotating hand motion than if the operation were performed manually. Powerful cameras are coupled with 3D vision to give clearer internal visibility during the operation so your surgeon can operate at the peak of his ability.
This translates into a number of benefits for patients, including:
- More likely to have a successful outcome: the control delivered by the Da Vinci robot allows for more precise removal of cancerous tissue, allowing your surgeon to remove it altogether.
- Preserved sexual function: with the precision and stability of the robotic hand, damage to important nerves that control sexual function and potency can be avoided.
- Faster recovery time: the use of high definition cameras through small incisions means that your body can recover more quickly.
