The da Vinci®
Surgical System

at Elmhurst Memorial Hospital

What is robotic surgery?

The da Vinci® Surgical System uses breakthrough technology to offer a minimally invasive alternative for many complex surgical procedures. The system allows your surgeon to insert miniature instruments and a tiny high-definition 3-D camera through a series of quarter-inch incisions.

Using hand controls, your surgeon guides robotic arms holding laparoscopic surgical instruments while advanced technology converts their large hand movements into precise, small movements. The robotic "wrists" can rotate a full 360 degrees, enabling your surgeon to control the miniature surgical instruments with unprecedented accuracy, flexibility and range of motion.

Because this technology uses fewer, smaller incisions, you benefit from significantly less post-operative pain, less blood loss, less scarring, shorter recovery time and a faster return to your normal daily activities.
