Overview of the da Vinci Xi Surgical System

The da Vinci® XiTM Surgical System at UMCP is a sophisticated robotic platform designed to enable complex surgery using a minimally invasive approach. The da Vinci Xi System consists of an ergonomic surgeon's console, a patient-side cart with four interactive robotic arms, a high-performance 3D/HD vision system and proprietary EndoWrist® instruments with Intuitive® motion.

Powered by state-of-the-art robotic technology, the da Vinci Surgical System is designed to scale, filter and seamlessly translate the surgeon's hand movements into more precise movements of the EndoWrist instruments. The net result is an intuitive interface with breakthrough surgical capabilities, enabling surgeons to perform more procedures through a 1-2 cm incision.

  • Highly magnified 3D/HD technology allows the surgeon to see the surgical site in precise, real-time movements with true depth perception and crystal-clear vision.

 

Many urologic, gynecologic, thoracic, colorectal and general surgical procedures performed using standard laparoscopic techniques may be performed more quickly and easily utilizing the da Vinci Xi Surgical System. By enhancing surgical capabilities, the da Vinci Xi System helps to improve clinical outcomes and redefine standards of care.
