Excerpt from Wikipedia The Free Encyclopedia: "The da Vinci Surgical System comprises three components: a surgeonís console, a patient-side robotic cart with 4 arms manipulated by the surgeon (one to control the camera and three to manipulate instruments), and a high-definition 3D vision system. Articulating surgical instruments are mounted on the robotic arms which are introduced into the body through cannulas. The surgeonís hand movements are scaled and filtered to eliminate hand tremor then translated into micro-movements of the proprietary instruments. The camera used in the system provides a true stereoscopic picture transmitted to a surgeon's console. The da Vinci System is FDA cleared for a variety of surgical procedures including surgery for prostate cancer".  da Vinci prostatectomy is commonly called robotic prostatectomy.

The interviews and quotations on this web page (those that are courtesy of Intuitive Surgical, Inc.) are from patients, surgeons and administrators who describe individual experiences with the da Vinci Surgical System. As you read, please remember that the experience is specific to the individual.
While clinical studies support the effectiveness of robotic-assisted minimally invasive surgery, results cannot be guaranteed, as surgery is procedure- and patient-specific.
