da Vinci Robot Hysterectomy

endowrist in palm (da Vinci)The cutting edge of laparoscopic technology is an instrument called the da Vinci robot. The da Vinci robot is a sophisticated piece of technology that enables an operation to be even more delicate than normal laparoscopic surgery.

The da Vinci robotic instruments can move in more directions than traditional laparoscopic instruments. This allows Dr. Maikis to be more precise during her surgery. With the da Vinci robot, more hysterectomies can be done laparoscopically than ever before.

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, Dr. Maikis operates while seated comfortably, viewing a highly magnified 3D image of the body’s interior. To operate, Dr. Maikis uses master controls that work like forceps.

As Dr. Maikis manipulates the controls, da Vinci responds to her input in real time, translating her hand, wrist and finger movements into precise movements of miniaturized instruments at the patient-side cart.
