da Vinci Single-Site Instruments and Accessories

da Vinci® Single-Site® Surgery enables surgeons to operate through a small incision in the patient’s umbilicus during a cholecystectomy, benign, hysterectomy or salpingo-oophorectomy. The end result: virtually scarless surgery.

Single-Site Configuration

  • Compatible with the da Vinci Si Surgical System.
  • Instruments and camera cross within the Single-Site port and use remote center technology to minimize cannula collisions, arm interferences and port-site movement.
  • da Vinci System software automatically detects and re-associates the user’s hands with the instrument tips to create Intuitive® movement through crossed cannulae.

Single-Site Port

  • The five-lumen port provides access for two Single-Site Instruments: the 8.5 mm 3DHD endoscope, a 5/10 mm accessory port and insufflation adaptor.
  • Port enables simple and safe entry through a 1.5 cm incision.

Curved 5 mm Instrument Cannulae

Designed to optimize triangulation toward the target anatomy while minimizing external collision of the instruments and camera arms. Curved architecture separates the instrument arms outside the body wall, maximizing range of motion and minimizing instrument crowding.

5 mm Semi-Rigid Instruments

Designed to be used through curved cannulae

Bipolar Cautery

Monopolar Cautery

Needle Drivers

The Single-Site Wristed Needle Driver was developed in part to facilitate suturing after removal of the uterus. It can move the instrument tip up to 45 degrees in all directions for precise needle positioning. This 5 mm instrument also features serrated jaws to facilitate needle handling.

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.
