da Vinci Robot

The da Vinci Surgical System is a sophisticated robotic platform designed to expand the surgeon’s capabilities and offer a state-of-the-art minimally invasive option for major surgery.

With da Vinci , small incisions are used to insert miniaturized wristed instruments and a high-definition 3D camera. Seated comfortably at the da Vinci console, your surgeon views a magnified, high-resolution 3D image of the surgical site inside your body.

At the same time, the latest robotic and computer technologies scale, filter and seamlessly translate your surgeon’s hand movements into precise micro- movements of the da Vinci instruments.

Although it is often called a “robot” , the da Vinci System cannot move or operate on its own; your surgeon is 100% in control.


The da Vinci Surgical System is the only commercially available technology that can provide the surgeon with the precision, dexterity and control of traditional open surgery, while only requiring 1-2 cm incisions.

da Vinci Surgical System consists of an ergonomically designed surgeon’s console, a patient cart with four interactive robotic arms, a high-performance vision system and patented EndoWrist instruments.

At the da Vinci console, your surgeon operates while seated comfortably, viewing a highly magnified 3D image of the body’s interior. To operate, the surgeon uses master controls that work like forceps.

As your surgeon manipulates the controls, da Vinci responds to your surgeon’s input in real time, translating his or her hand, wrist and finger movements into precise movements of miniaturized instruments at the patient-side cart.

da Vinci ‘s patient cart holds up to three EndoWrist instruments and one 3D camera. To access the target anatomy, your surgeon introduces the precisely controlled EndoWrist instruments into the body through a series of dime-sized incisions. A broad range of instrument types are available to help your surgeon perform specialized surgical tasks with precision and control.

“Urinary control and erections with the da Vinci Robotic Prostate Surgery are MUCH BETTER than with conventional Laparoscopic radical prostate surgery (laprp)”

da Vinci Robotic Prostatectomy: A Minimally Invasive Surgical Procedure

When facing a diagnosis of prostate cancer, it is important to learn about all treatments and surgical options.

If your doctor recommends surgery to treat your prostate cancer, you may be a candidate for a new, less-invasive sur­gical
procedure called da Vinci Robotic Prostatectomy. This Robotic Prostatectomy procedure incorporates a state-of-the-art surgical system that helps your surgeon see vital anatomical structures more clearly and to perform a more precise surgical procedure.

Why da Vinci Surgery?

With the da Vinci System, surgeons operate through a few small incisions instead of a large open incision – similar to traditional laparoscopy. The da Vinci System features a magnified 3D high-definition vision system and special wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human wrist. da Vinci enables your doctor to operate with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control.

As a result of da Vinci technology, da Vinci Prostatectomy offers many potential benefits when compared to traditional open surgery, including:

  • More precise removal of cancerous prostate
  • While nerve sparing surgery is possible regardless of surgical approach, studies suggest nerve sparing surgery with da Vinci enables:
  • Faster return of erectile (sexual) function: Studies show patients who are potent prior to da Vinci Surgery experience a faster return of erectile function than previously potent patients who have open surgery
  • Better chance for return of urinary continence: Recent studies show more patients with da Vinci Surgery have full return of urinary continence within 6 months as compared to patients having open surgery
  • Less blood loss
  • Less need for a blood transfusion
  • Less pain
  • Lower risk of complications
  • Lower risk of wound infection
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Less chance of hospital readmission
  • Less chance of needing follow-up surgery
  • Fewer days with catheter
  • Less risk of deep vein thrombosis (life-threatening condition where a blood clot forms deep in the body)
  • Faster recovery time and return to normal activities

As a result of da Vinci technology, da Vinci Prostatectomy offers the following potential benefits compared to traditional laparoscopy:

  • More patients return to pre-surgery erectile function at 12-month checkup
  • Faster return of urinary continence
  • Lower risk of complications
  • Less blood loss and need for a transfusion
  • Less chance of nerve injury
  • Less chance of injuring the rectum
  • Shorter operation
  • Less risk of deep vein thrombosis (life-threatening condition where a blood clot forms deep in the body)
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Less chance of hospital readmission
  • Less chance of needing follow-up surgery

The da Vinci Surgical System is used in 4 out of 5 radical prostatectomies in the U.S.

State-of-the-art da Vinci uses the latest in surgical and robotics technologies and is beneficial for performing complex surgery. Dr. Razdan is 100% in control of the da Vinci System, which translates his or her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside your body. da Vinci – taking surgery beyond the limits of the human hand.

Experienced Physicians like Dr. Razdan using the da Vinci System has performed well over 5,000 Robotic procedures to date and counting. The da Vinci Surgical System is changing the experience of surgery for people around the world.
