da Vinci® Robotic Surgery
The da Vinci Robotic Surgery System brings the latest in minimally invasive surgical procedures to Cape Cod Healthcare. With this technology, your doctor works at a control panel next to the operating table, using a high-definition 3-D camera to guide miniaturized instruments within the surgical site. The robotic hands allow greater dexterity than a human hand and create less disturbance to internal tissue and organs.
How Robotic Surgery Benefits Patients
As a result of this sophisticated technology, patients experience:
- Smaller incisions
- Less pain and blood loss
- Fewer complications
- Lower risk of wound infection
- Quick recovery and return to regular activities
