da Vinci Xi


The da Vinci Xi is Intuitive's most advanced robotic-assisted surgical system. The surgeon operates the da Vinci Xi by making precise and steady movements from a console in the operating room. Tremor-free, intricate movements can be executed by the surgeon using the controls. With a crystal-clear, 3D view magnified 10X, the surgeon can see more than the naked eye. A miniaturized surgical camera and specialized instruments are designed to help with dissection and reconstruction deep inside the body.
The da Vinci Surgical System provides the surgeon with precision, dexterity, and control during surgery, plus the ability to execute 1-2 cm versus longer incisions.

The da Vinci Surgical System consists of an ergonomically designed surgeon’s console, a patient cart with four interactive robotic arms, a high-performance vision system, and patented EndoWrist instruments.
