The physicians of alta uro AG perform a variety of operations with the help of the Da Vinci robot. At the Merian Iselin Clinic, the latest generation of the Da Vinci surgical robot is available to us for this purpose. The Da Vinci system has many advantages which we do not want our patients to deprive of. The advantages include, among others: smaller incisions and scars, less loss of blood, less pain after the operation, fast recovery time after the operation, and a shorter hospital stay.

What is the Da Vinci robot?

The Da Vinci robotic system is a surgical system with which the surgeon can control the movements of a camera and the instruments via a control unit (console). The camera and instruments are inserted through small skin incisions into the abdominal cavity previously filled with gas. The camera transmits a three-dimensional image and magnifies the image up to ten times. The Da Vinci system translates the hand movements of the surgeon at the console into movements of the instruments. The range of movement of the instruments is clearly superior to that of the hand. Thus the Da Vinci system is not a robot in the true sense of the word, as the device does not carry out any actions on its own.
