About Robotic Surgical System
The Da Vinci Surgical System is a robotic surgical system made by the American company, Intuitive Surgical. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2000, it is designed to facilitate the surgeon in performing complex surgery using a minimally invasive approach. The da Vinci System has been successfully used in the following procedures:

• Radical prostatectomy, pyeloplasty, cystectomy, nephrectomy and ureteral reimplantation
• Hysterectomy, myomectomy , excision of endometriosis and pelvic organ prolapse repair
• Hiatal hernia repair;
• Spleen-sparing distal pancreatectomy, cholecystectomy, Nissen’s fundoplication, Heller’s myotomy, gastric bypass, donor nephrectomy, adrenalectomy, splenectomy and bowel resection
• Internal mammary artery mobilization and cardiac tissue ablation
• Mitral valve repair and endoscopic atrial septal defect closure
• Mammary to left anterior descending coronary artery anastomosis for cardiac revascularization with adjunctive mediastinotomy
• Transoral resection of tumors of the upper aerodigestive tract (tonsil, tongue base, larynx) and transaxillary thyroidectomy
• Resection of tumors originating in the lung.

The system is commonly used for many urological procedures including prostatectomies, gynecological surgical procedures including hysterectomies & increasingly for cardiac valve repair. the scope of robotic surgery has now extended into a number of general surgical procedures as well. Countless number of procedures worldwide are being done robotically for both benign and cancer cases.

The Da Vinci System consists of a surgeon's console that is typically in the same room as the patient, and a patient-side cart with four interactive robotic arms controlled by the surgeon from the console. The surgeon is 100% in control of the robot at all times.

In conventional laparoscopy, the surgeon operates while standing, using hand-held, long-shafted instruments, which have no wrists. With conventional laparoscopy, the surgeon must look up and away from the instruments, to a nearby 2D video monitor to see an image of the target anatomy.

In robotic surgery however, surgeons are offered superior 3D High Definition visualization, enhanced dexterity with wristed instruments, greater precision and ergonomic comfort. The result of these advantages is that the da Vinci Surgical System makes it possible for surgeons to perform more minimally invasive procedures involving complex dissection or reconstruction. For the patient, a da Vinci procedure can offer all the potential benefits of a minimally invasive procedure, including less pain, less blood loss and consequently less need for blood transfusions. Moreover, the da Vinci System can enable a shorter hospital stay, a quicker recovery and faster return to normal daily activities.
