Features and Benefits of Robotic Surgery
Using the da Vinci Surgical System® Dr. Khoury performs a variety of complex procedures with more control, precision, efficiency, and flexibility than is possible with conventional surgical procedures and techniques. During a surgery, Dr. Khoury controls every movement of the robot as it makes extremely small incisions and performs complex maneuvers in any direction.
Benefits to patients include more precise surgical procedures, shorter hospitalization, and quicker recoveries with less pain.
Flexibility beyond the human hand
The daVinci Surgical System uses EndoWrist® Instrumentation, which provides a range of motion much greater than the human hand. This greatly increases Dr. Khoury’s dexterity during a wide variety of surgical procedures.
Robotically enhanced motion
Using Intuitive® Motion, the da Vinci Surgical System converts the Dr. Khoury’s movements into more precise and scaled motions performed by the robotic arms and instruments.
3D High Def Vision
The da Vinci Surgical System provides up to 10x magnification in a 3-dimensional, enhanced high-definition view. This gives Dr. Khoury and his team an unparalleled visual during your surgery, precisely targeting anatomy in a way that is unavailable with conventional open surgery and laparoscopy.
Two doctors working simultaneously
For some procedures, two doctors are better than one, and with the da Vinci Surgical System’s dual console capability, Dr. Khoury is able to work simultaneously with a second surgeon when it’s best for you. In these situations, as a patient you benefit from having two doctors with different specialties collaborate during your surgery.
