da Vinci® Surgical System- The Future of Surgery
The da Vinci® surgical system is comprised of a surgeon’s console that provides 3-D imaging of the surgical field, a patient-side cart which provides 4 robotic arms, endowrist instruments which mimic the motion of the surgeon’s hands and wrists, and the vision system which provides 3-D images of the surgical field.
This innovative toolset allows our surgeons to treat various diseases through a minimally invasive approach that benefits both surgeon and most importantly our patients. Many applications of surgery have been achieved using the da Vinci® Surgical System including procedures in Cardiology, General Surgery, Gynecology, Pediatrics, Thoracic Surgery, and Urology.
As one of the world’s leading robotics programs the CARES Center at UNC offers various robotic-assisted procedures in Gastrointestinal Surgery, Gynecology, Otolaryngology- Head and Neck Surgery, Pediatrics, Surgical Oncology, and Urology. Our world-renowned surgeons and academic medical facilities are leading both the State of North Carolina and the Southeast in the latest surgical treatment options.
At UNC we are Leading, Teaching, Caring.
