The instruments that the system is made of rotate within the body as it would in the case of the surgeon’s hands allows the surgeon to gain the surgical access. This because of the small size that is approximately one to inches making what would be otherwise impossible for the traditional surgeon possible.
The system was mainly designed for the removal of prostate but has in its lasts model been used in bladder and kidney diseases, otolaryngology, abdominal and gynecology. The system is also applied in thoracic, pediatric and cardiac surgery.
A long incision is made by the surgeon in the case of the traditional open surgery. This means that the surgeon requires more access to the patient’s anatomy that is actually required to perform an operation at a particular site. This is not the case with the advanced robotic surgery.
Rigid manual instruments are the ones used in the case of the traditional minimally invasive surgery (laparoscopic surgery). These instruments pass through small incisions. The patient’s anatomy is observed through s video monitor that is standardized. On the other hand the robotic system does all the operations using a computerized system that require minimal and at some point on human control.
The surgeon’s mechanical movement that allows for the 3D vision millimetric precision is done by the Da Vinci Si full HD robotic system. This makes sure that there is even a single hand trembling making it very helpful to the surgeon especially in those operations where precision in critical and makes a lot of difference. In the case of the traditional surgery trembling is common.
Based on the above study, it can be concluded the invention of the da Vinci HD surgical system has been a major breakthrough in the field of surgery. Many lives have been saved through this advanced robotic surgery system with surgeons and patients benefiting in equal measures. There
