da Vinci® Robotic Surgery
In a world where millimeters can make a difference, precision is everything.
Investing in the most advanced da Vinci® surgical systems is one of Sutter’s latest steps in giving our patients access to the most effective technologies and treatments. da Vinci® robotic-assisted surgery is a break-through technology that allows the surgeon’s hand to make extremely precise movements, revolutionizing the treatment of prostate, gynecological and kidney cancers, as well as gynecological and urogynecological surgery. da Vinci® does not replace the surgeon; the system enhances the surgeon’s skill by providing an magnified, three-dimensional view of the surgery site that allows the surgeon to see more detail than is possible with the human eye.
For more than six years, Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento has been offering da Vinci® robotic surgery. Recently, Sutter invested in three da Vinci® Si HD Systems, two new robots to replace the Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento technology and a new robot for Sutter Roseville Medical Center. The new technology includes advanced 3D HD visualization and magnification, offering surgeons an immersive view of the operative field; improved dexterity and range of motion far greater than even the human hand; and motion technology, which replicates the operative experience and control of open surgery by preserving natural eye-hand-instrument alignment and intuitive instrument control.
