The da Vinci Surgical System is a robotic surgical system made by the American company Intuitive Surgical. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2000, it is designed to facilitate complex surgery using a minimally invasive approach and is controlled by a surgeon from a console. The system is commonly used for prostatectomies, and increasingly for cardiac valve repair and gynecologic surgical procedures. According to the manufacturer, the da Vinci System is called “da Vinci” in part because Leonardo da Vinci’s “study of human anatomy eventually led to the design of the first known robot in history.”
Da Vinci Surgical Systems operate in hospitals worldwide, with an estimated 200,000 surgeries conducted in 2012, most commonly for hysterectomies and prostate removals. As of September 30, 2017, there was an installed base of 4,271 units worldwide – 2,770 in the United States, 719 in Europe, 561 in Asia, and 221 in the rest of the world.
One of these unique devices which is owned by prestigious global VAMED healthcare group in Czech republic provides wide range of minimally invasive procedures using the da Vinci robotic system, a state-of-the-art 3D visual system that allows surgeons to see inside the patient’s body and to execute the most accurate procedure while making the smallest possible incision, resulting in less patient discomfort and faster recovery times. The Hospital’s wards with Austrian quality of Healthcare can accommodate 129 patients at any one time. That why we getting so popular in Medical Tourism
