Fourth-Generation Robotic Surgical System

AdventHealth Global Robotics Institute is proud to now offer Intuitive Surgical’s fourth-generation robotic surgical system, the da Vinci SP. This new technology allows your surgeon to perform your prostatectomy procedure through a single small incision in the abdomen.

What makes single-port robotic prostatectomy different?

The da Vinci SP® system provides surgeons with robotic-assisted technology designed for precise access to body tissue. The ability to use one small incision or enter through a natural opening in the body creates a minimally invasive option for complex procedures. This single, one-inch incision may cause you less pain and scarring, and shorten your recovery time.

How Does the SP Work?

This system includes three multi-jointed, wristed instruments and the first full-wristed 3D, HD camera. These instruments and camera all operate through a single cannula (thin tube) and are triangulated around the target anatomy to provide careful precision during your operation. This system allows for flexible port placement and excellent internal and external range of motion.

How long has the SP been available?

The SP was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in 2014. It approved the device for urologic procedures in June 2018.

Will the SP be used in the future for other surgeries?

Currently the SP is approved for both urologic and transoral (mouth/throat) surgeries. This technology proves promising for other specialties.

Together, da Vinci® surgery technology and your doctor have the ability to perform complex procedures through just a few small openings.
