Revolutionary daVinci Robotic Surgery:

Taking Surgery Beyond the Limits of the Human Hand


NYU Winthrop Hospital, a leader in minimally invasive surgical techniques, is pleased to offer patients access to our daVinci Surgical System – a state-of-the-science surgical robot that integrates 3-D high definition (HD) endoscopy and state-of-the-art robotic technology to virtually extend the surgeon’s eyes and hands into the surgical field.

The daVinci System delivers patient benefits that include a shorter hospital stay, less pain, less blood loss, fewer transfusions and a more rapid return to normal activities.

The daVinci Surgical System Offers Enhanced Surgical Precision, Dexterity and Control

The use of robotics takes minimally invasive techniques into a new era, further minimizing the physical and emotional impact of surgery on patients. Robotically-assisted minimally invasive surgery represents a third generation of surgery, one which continues to build upon the advances to open surgery. Robotic technology takes surgery beyond the limits of the human hand, introducing precise, versatile instrument movement combined with three-dimensional visualization of the operative site.

The advanced dual console daVinci Surgical System enables surgeons to perform many procedures in an extraordinarily precise manner through:

  • smaller incisions
  • robotic technology
  • unparalleled 3-D HD visualization of the surgical site

The daVinci Surgical System consists of an ergonomically designed surgeon’s console, a patient-side cart with interactive robotic arms, the high-performance InSite® Vision System and proprietary EndoWrist® Instruments. Powered by state-of-the-art robotic technology, the surgeon’s hand movements are scaled, filtered and seamlessly translated into precise movements of the EndoWrist® Instruments.

The result? An intuitive interface with breakthrough surgical capabilities.

Specialty procedures being performed through daVinci robotic surgery include:

  • Gynecologic oncology surgery
  • Hysterectomy
  • Sacrocolpopexy to repair vaginal and uterine prolapsed
  • Gastric bypass surgery
  • Prostatectomy
  • Colon resection
  • General abdominal surgery
