Together, John C. Lincoln's da Vinci Si robotic surgery system and single incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS) system require smaller incisions and afford improved surgical precision. These state-of-the-art surgical technologies offer numerous benefits for patients and surgeons alike.

Benefits for Patients

  • Shorter hospitalization.
  • Reduced pain.
  • Faster recovery times.
  • Smaller incisions, resulting in reduced risk of infection, less blood loss and minimal scarring.
  • Autologous donation (donating own blood before surgery) is not required.
  • Patients resume normal activities sooner.

Benefits for Surgeons

  • Magnified 3-D, HD and 10x visualization for optimum viewing within the operative site.
  • Increased precision, control and range of motion of micro-instruments.
  • Tremor filtration.
  • Improved access to and manipulation of organs, tissues and nerves.
