The daVinci Si HD Surgical System

Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) allows physicians to perform many kinds of major surgery with less patient trauma and pain, minimal scarring, faster recovery and shorter hospital stays. Surgeries are performed through small incisions, which replace the large incisions needed for conventional open surgeries.

Winthrop surgeons (l.-r.) Eva Chalas, MD, Chief of Gynecological Oncology and Director of Clinical Cancer Services; Collin Brathwaite, MD, Chief of the Division of Minimally Invasive and Bariatric Surgery; and David Gershbaum, MD, attending urologist, and others are using the high-tech daVinci Si HD Surgical System to perform minimally invasive surgeries with extraordinary precision.

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 MIS represents a third generation of surgery, one which builds upon the advances to open surgery introduced by MIS. 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 benefits of MIS are numerous. Traditional surgery often requires a lengthy hospital stay and weeks of recovery. With minimally invasive surgery, the goal is to accomplish internal repair while leaving the body surface as natural as it was prior to surgery. Many procedures require only several days in the hospital and promote reduced recovery time. Patients can often get back to their normal routines more quickly.

With da Vinci Surgery, physicians can offer standard-of-care treatment with the potential for outcomes that are equal to or better than conventional surgery � and with the potential benefits of a minimally invasive procedure.
