Robotic surgery stands out as the new frontier of minimally-invasive surgery. The "da Vinci" surgical system, one of the most widely-used surgical robots worldwide, which delivers an unrivaled degree of precision to the surgical performance, allows to overcome limitations set by the difficulty to treat diseases affecting hard-to-reach anatomical areas with laparoscopic technique. Whilst ensuring the same level of quality and efficacy as conventional surgery, robotic surgery also extends the benefits of mini-invasive techniques to more complex surgeries: no large abdominal scars, shorter operating time (less anesthesia, faster post-operative recovery).
The robot allows versatile movements and reaching of narrow and deep anatomical spaces. This is a helpful feature for pelvic surgery, therefore in gynecology, for both benign and oncologic conditions or, else, in surgeries on obese patients where bowel encumbrance limits the field of action.
Humanitas' da Vinci robot is a state-of-the-art surgical system, with 3D high-definition vision and four mechanical arms. It features an integrated system consisting of two parts: control desk (console) and patient-side surgical cart
Sitting at the console, the surgeon can maneuvre robotic instruments, thus having the possibility to rapidly and precisely exchange the function of mechanical arms. Movements by the surgeon are transferred through the surgical cart to the arms that are equipped with special surgical tools. 3D vision is another benefit featured by the "da Vinci" robot, thus giving the surgeon depth of field, greater image enlargement and an extremely stable vision.
