Patients with kidney cancer or those with prostate cancer now have additional treatment options with the da Vinci® Surgical System.
Surgery is traditionally performed using an open approach, which requires a large abdominal incision. Another approach is conventional laparoscopy. Conventional laparoscopy is less invasive but limits the doctor’s dexterity, visualization, and control, compared to open surgery. With da Vinci®, surgeons can operate with greater precision and control through tiny incisions, minimizing the pain and risk associated with large incisions while increasing the likelihood of a fast recovery and excellent clinical outcomes.
