Minimally Invasive Surgery
The da Vinci ® Surgical System at Mercy Hospital enhances surgical capabilities by enabling the performance of complex surgeries through tiny surgical openings. The System cannot be programmed nor can it make decisions on its own. The da Vinci ® System requires that every surgical maneuver be performed with direct input from your surgeon.
The da Vinci® Surgical System has been successfully used in thousands of prostate cancer procedures world-wide.
For many patients approaching surgery, it is often difficult to visualize what is entailed in a specific surgical procedure. To give patients a better understanding of the advances made by robotically-assisted minimally invasive surgery, we present the following video presentation. This video offers a three-dimensional simulation of the male reproductive anatomy, the enabling technology –the da Vinci ® Surgical System – and the procedure itself.
