With the da Vinci System, surgeons operate through a few small incisions instead of a large open incision. The da Vinci System features a magnified 3D high-definition vision system and special wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human wrist. As a result, da Vinci enables your surgeon to operate with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control. Your surgeon is 100% in control of the da Vinci System, which translates his or her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside your body. As with any other surgery, your gynecologist will discuss potential risks and complications related to da Vinci hysterectomy.
