da Vinci is Proven Safe and Effective
Numbers count when it comes to system effectiveness, and to date, tens of thousands of minimally invasive, robot-assisted procedures have been successfully performed worldwide. Safety is the first priority, and da Vinci offers multiple, redundant safety features which make the procedures virtually as safe as traditional surgical methods.
As a patient, you are under the care of at least two medical professionals during surgery – your surgeon, as well as his or her supporting team. As your surgeon maneuvers the controls, da Vinci translates his or her movements into precise movements of miniaturized instruments. Tremor reduction minimizes unintended movements, which means that instruments can move in a more precise manner than a human hand.
