Da Vinci by Intuitive


Enabling surgical care to get patients back to what matters

Chapman Global Medical Center is excited to provide our patients with the da Vinci surgical system which gives surgeons an advanced set of instruments to perform robotic-assisted minimally invasive surgery. The term “robotic” often misleads people. Robots don’t perform surgery. Your surgeon performs these procedures with da Vinci by using instruments that they guide via a console. The instrument size makes it possible for surgeons to operate through one or a few small incisions decreasing recovery time.

The da Vinci system translates your surgeon’s hand movements at the console in real-time, bending and rotating the instruments while performing the procedure. The tiny wristed instruments move like a human hand but with a greater range of motion. The da Vinci vision system also delivers highly magnified, 3D high-definition views of the surgical area.

The Types of Procedures We Offer That Are Robotic-Assisted




Better Vision. Greater Precision

Improved Vision:  High Definition, 3D, magnified, and immersive view. The surgeon controls the camera and does not rely on an assistant or nurse.

Wristed Instruments:  More precise than laparoscopic instruments, they move like your hand.

Improved Ergonomics:  The surgeon is seated and comfortable, reducing fatigue, a common cause of surgical errors.

FireFly Visualization:  This shows all of the active blood vessels to the tissue, which helps avoid complications like anastomotic leaks.

Vessel Sealer and Stapler:  “Wristed” control of these instruments allows greater precision when dissecting tissue.
