da Vinci Surgical System 

The da Vinci® S HD Surgical System allows greater surgical precision without the use of incisions in many instances. The da Vinci integrates 3D endoscopy with advanced robotic technology, virtually extending the surgeon’s eyes and hands into the surgical site.

For certain head and neck cancers of the tongue, throat lining and voice box, robotic-assisted surgery with the da Vinci technology may be the most effective and least invasive treatment choice. Benefits include:

  • A safe and effective, minimally invasive approach
  • Tumor removal through the mouth with no external incisions
  • Minimal or no need for chemoradiation therapy
  • Minimal blood loss and discomfort
  • Fewer complications
  • Shorter hospital stay versus open procedures
  • Quicker recovery
  • No visible scarring
