da Vinci Robotic Surgical System at Cape Cod Healthcare

The da Vinci Robotic Surgery System brings the latest in minimally-invasive surgical procedures to Cape Cod Healthcare. The da Vinci System provides advantages to manual laparoscopic surgery through enhanced capabilities, including high definition 3D vision and a magnified view for the surgeon. Your doctor controls the da Vinci System, which translates his or her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny surgical instruments.

Advantages to the Surgeon:

  • 10X magnified 3D HD vision
  • Wristed instrumentation
  • Hand Tremor Filtration for improved precision
  • Improved Ergonomics

The da Vinci Robotic Surgery System is used for gynecological, urological, colorectal and thoracic surgery. Overall, patients of robotic surgery experience:

  • Smaller incisions, which means scarring is drastically reduced
  • Shorter recovery times, measured in days instead of weeks
  • Reduced pain and potential for complications
  • Shorter hospital stays, which means you can get back to your life
