The Da Vinci robotic arm system is currently the most advanced minimally invasive surgery system, and it has been widely used in numerous countries worldwide over the past decade including US, European, and Asian countries. Over 200,000 Da Vinci surgeries have been performed every year all over the world.
  The Da Vinci robotic surgical system allows surgeons to carry out more complicated surgeries requiring high precision and high flexibility. It has led to the breakthrough of obstacles for conventional surgeries. The computer fine tuning system allows surgeons to carry out more subtle motion control while eliminating unnecessary hand trembling; in addition, with the magnified 3D field of view and the surgical instrument with simulated wrist, every move of the surgeon can be carried out via high precision robotic wrist for highly precise cutting, repair, and stitching while preserving important nerves, blood vessels, and organs, thus reducing the risk of surgery.
  The Da Vinci robotic surgical system is totally controlled by a surgeon, so every decision and action should be taken by an experienced surgeon. In the US, the Da Vinci surgery has become the primary option for numerous surgeons in the fields of urology, gynecology, general surgery, otorhinolaryngology or cardiac surgery. Conventional open surgery often comes with a larger incision that may lead to more complications and long recovery. Therefore, many patients will choose the Da Vinci robotic arm system for surgery and medical treatment.
  Many patients were satisfied with the results of surgeries via Da Vinci robotic surgical system, and even surprised by the positive experience of such surgeries. In addition to not feeling the pain and discomfort that came with conventional open surgeries or laparoscopic surgery, the recovery period was also greatly shortened with enhanced quality of post-surgery recovery and care. This allows patients to quickly return to their normal lives after surgeries.

Item The da Vinci® Surgical System Traditional surgery
wound Smaller incision, less visible wound Big wounds, more likely to leave scars
Risk of infection Low infection rate High infection rate
feeling of pain less more
Blood loss minimum, only a quarter of endoscopic surgery Large amount of blood loss
Blood transfusion rate low high
operation time The average time is shorter than traditional surgery Relatively longer
Hospitalization day 2 to 3 days to discharge (fastest) Depending on the surgery and the condition, at least 1 to 2 weeks of hospitalization is required
Image recognition Magnified 10x high definition 3D images no
safety It can perform surgery that is not possible with traditional surgery or endoscopic surgery, and can avoid damage to vital blood vessels and nerves. Large surgical incision, increased risk
complication Less likely to cause complications More prone to complications
Prognosis Better than traditional surgery Depending on the surgery and the condition
quality of life The degree of recovery is better than traditional surgery Recovery time is longer, so the quality is lower
