The world's first robotic surgical system with 3D and HD vision that offers twice the effective viewing resolution

The robot, called the da Vinci S HD Surgical System, integrates 3D HD endoscopy and state-of-the-art robotic technology to give surgeons precise control of the robot's four operating arms. The advantage of the robot instruments is that they give the surgeon the same movement as the human wrist, but at the end of a small instrument. This instrument can then be placed inside the body cavities to perform complex surgical procedures.

It is the world's first robotic surgical system with 3D and HD vision that offers twice the effective viewing resolution, providing improved clarity and detail of tissue planes and critical anatomy.

Surgeons at Intermountain Medical Center recently performed the first robotic surgery using the most advanced robotic surgical system in the world that utilizes 3-D technology and high definition (HD) vision that virtually extends the surgeon's eyes and hands deep into the surgical field.

Prostate cancer is a complex disease process. There is no one treatment for all prostate cancers. Some patients are not good candidates for surgery of any kind. The new da Vinci robotic system at Intermountain Medical Center is only one of many different excellent treatment options for prostate cancer.

Patients with prostate cancer must consult their urologist and radiation oncologist to discuss treatment options that would be appropriate for their individual circumstance.

The robotic system at Intermountain Medical Center will eventually be used on ob/gyn patients, general surgery patients, and heart patients.
