Core Technology & System Features

Core Technology

Core Technology

The da Vinci Si System retains and builds on the core technology at the heart of the existing da Vinci and da Vinci S ™ Systems: 
  • Advanced 3D HD visualization with up to 10x magnification and an immersive view of the operative field
  • EndoWrist® instrumentation with dexterity and range of motion far greater than even the human hand
  • Intuitive® Motion technology, which replicates the experience of open surgery by preserving natural eye-hand-instrument alignment and intuitive instrument control
System Features

System Features

The da Vinci Si Surgical System provides the following core features:

1. Surgeon Control and Comfort
2. OR Efficiency
3. Integrated Technology & Data

da Vinci Si Optional Dual Console

Simaleandfemalelookinginseated
The da Vinci SI Surgical System offers a dual console used for both training and collaboration. During a dual console operation, each surgeon sits at his or her individual console and can see the same high definition images of the anatomy from the 3D endoscope (flexible tube with a camera and light at the tip). The dual console feature is a technical innovation that is a first in robotic-assisted minimally invasive surgery.

When the dual console is used for training, control over instruments can be easily and quickly exchanged during surgery - meaning the teaching/mentoring surgeon can hand over control of the instruments to the resident/fellow at any time. This enables a see-and-repeat model of instruction designed to accelerate the learning curve.

For collaborative surgery with the dual console, two surgeons can operate in concert. While one surgeon performs the primary tasks of the operation, the second surgeon can assist with another task, such as retraction.

da Vinci Si: Surgeon Controls & Console

da Vinci Si is engineered for simplicity to maximize ease-of-use and enable the surgeon and surgical team to achieve optimal case preparation and OR turnaround times.
Visual resolution

Visual resolution

The 3D image in the console viewer allows surgeons to see anatomical structures in high definition and natural colors with up to 10x magnification.
Ergonomic settings

Ergonomic settings

The console features multiple ergonomic adjustments, allowing surgeons to customize four different parameters for added comfort during surgical procedures.
Surgeon touchpad

Surgeon touchpad

An integrated surgeon control interface offers comprehensive control of video, audio and system settings. Settings are stored to a unique user profile, providing automatic recall for future cases.
Fingertip controls

Fingertip controls

Enhanced master controllers allow for precise, dexterous control of the EndoWrist instruments. Motion scaling settings enable seamless adjustments of hand-toinstrument movement ratios.
Footswitch panel

Footswitch panel

The footswitch panel enables the surgeon to perform a multitude of tasks such as swapping between different types of energy instruments, and is scalable to support future instrument applications.

da Vinci Si: OR Efficiency

da Vinci Si is engineered for simplicity to maximize ease-of-use and enable the surgeon and surgical team to achieve optimal case preparation and OR turnaround times.
3D HD camera head

3D HD camera head

A lightweight 3D HD camera with integrated control for focus, illumination and automated scope detection offers quick and convenient vision setup.
Motorized patient cart

Motorized patient cart

A motor-driven patient cart facilitates quick and controlled docking of the system to the patient.
Streamlined draping

Streamlined draping

One-piece sterile draping with built-in instrument adapters facilitate efficient case preparation.
Easy setup

Easy setup

A variety of time-saving features, such as one-step cable connectors, enable quick and efficient setup.
Simple user interface

Simple user interface

Easy-to-use touchscreen controls, symbols and icons offer simple intra-operative system and vision adjustments.

da Vinci Si: Integrated Technology & Data

The da Vinci Si System is equipped with core da Vinci technology and also has expansion capabilities for a second surgeon console,  Firefly® Fluorescence Imaging and advanced instrumentation, such as EndoWrist® One™ Vessel Sealer, EndoWrist One Suction/Irrigator and EndoWrist Stapler 45.

Dual console capability

An available second console allows two surgeons to collaborate during a procedure. Surgeons can exchange control of the instrument arms and endoscope using the surgeon touchpad, while a built-in intercom system facilitates communication. The addition of a second console enables:

* Two surgeons of the same or different specialties to collaborate on a single case.
* An immersive environment for training new da Vinci surgeons.
* A platform for existing da Vinci surgeons to more efficiently refine techniques and learn new procedures directly from their peers.

Boom compatibility

Addressing the increasing trend towards OR integration, vision system components may be conveniently installed on an OR boom (with optional upgrade). Stowage of the vision cart components on a user-provided boom can help maximize valuable OR floor space.

TilePro™ multi-input display

Allows the surgeon and the OR team to view 3D video of the operative field along with up to two additional video sources such as ultrasound and EKG.

Serious complications may occur in any surgery, including da Vinci® Surgery, up to and including death. Examples of serious or life-threatening complications, which may require prolonged and/or unexpected hospitalization and/or reoperation, include but are not limited to, one or more of the following: injury to tissues/organs, bleeding, infection and internal scarring that can cause long-lasting dysfunction/pain. Risks of surgery also include the potential for equipment failure and/or human error. Individual surgical results may vary.

Risks specific to minimally invasive surgery, including da Vinci Surgery, include but are not limited to, one or more of the following: temporary pain/nerve injury associated with positioning; temporary pain/discomfort from the use of air or gas in the procedure; a longer operation and time under anesthesia and conversion to another surgical technique. If your doctor needs to convert the surgery to another surgical technique, this could result in a longer operative time, additional time under anesthesia, additional or larger incisions and/or increased complications.

Patients who are not candidates for non-robotic minimally invasive surgery are also not candidates for da Vinci® Surgery. Patients should talk to their doctor to decide if da Vinci Surgery is right for them. Patients and doctors should review all available information on non-surgical and surgical options in order to make an informed decision.
