The Many Benefits of the da Vinci® Surgical System

As the world makes advances in technology, robotic surgery is quickly becoming the gold standard for a wide variety of procedures. About 15% of surgeries use robotics now, and that number is only expected to increase over the coming years.

Robotic surgery offers a host of benefits for surgeons and their patients — from enhanced precision and better results to less pain and faster recovery times when compared to traditional open procedures. And no robotic surgery system is more respected than da Vinci®.

The Center for Minimally Invasive and Robotic Surgery, located in Peoria, Arizona, is the only private practice in the Valley of the Sun that specializes in da Vinci surgery. Rachel Alt, MD, Brian Prebil, DO, and our team have performed thousands of procedures. Today, we’re sharing some of the reasons we love this cutting-edge system for our patients.

The benefits of robotic surgery with the da Vinci system

The da Vinci surgical system consists of a surgical console, four interactive robotic arms, proprietary EndoWrist® surgical instruments, and a high-definition three-dimensional visual system.

Our team stays in the operating room with you the whole time and works at the surgical console to perform your procedure.

Robotic precision

The da Vinci system combines Dr. Alt and Dr. Prebil’s expertise with extreme accuracy. Our surgeons make tiny, controlled movements with the robotic arms that simply wouldn’t be possible with human hands alone.

Using the da Vinci system allows them to perform complex surgeries with smaller incisions and greater precision, which means less tissue damage and shorter recovery times for our patients.

Flexible treatments

With four robotic arms and a range of surgical tools, the da Vinci system can assist Dr. Alt and Dr. Prebil with a range of common surgical procedures. They regularly perform robotic surgery for:

Their advanced training means they can offer robotic surgery for complex cases, where open surgery was the only option previously.

Better results

Possibly the best benefit of da Vinci surgery is that it offers better results for our patients. Procedures are minimally invasive, which means your incisions are much smaller than they would be with traditional surgery.

For patients, minimally invasive robotic surgery often means:

Every patient and every procedure is different, and Dr. Alt and Dr. Prebil can help you understand what to expect if you choose to have a da Vinci procedure.

Tested in the real world

Since the system was introduced in 1999, more than 775,000 people across the world have had a da Vinci procedure. It’s an effective option for many people who need surgery and are in generally good health.
