Davinci Sp (Surgical System) by Intuitive Global Design Team
2018 - 2019, Platinum A' Scientific Instruments, Medical Devices and Research Equipment Design Award Winner
At Intuitive, we believe that minimally invasive care is life-enhancing care. By combining ingenuity and intelligent technology, we expand the potential of physicians to heal without constraints.
The da Vinci SP surgical system is an advanced, robotic-assisted platform for minimally invasive surgery (MIS). It acts as a natural extension of a surgeon’s eyes and hands through a combination of cutting-edge robotics, 3DHD stereoscopic vision, and intuitive human-interface controls. The system delivers all of this capability through a single small incision. We have been vigilant about providing as much capability to surgeons and their care teams (nurse circulators, scrub techs, and surgical assists) as possible, because we know that they will use everything we can provide to care for their patients. That’s why we work to deliver smart technology and capabilities that provide the ease of use, services, training, and data insights required to help surgeons and their teams succeed. Said Dan Eun, MD, Chief Robotic Surgery, Temple University Hospital: “The introduction of the da Vinci SP system represents the first time that surgeons will have a comprehensive surgical platform that combines a single port and enhanced optics with wristed advanced instrumentation. As the capabilities and limitations of minimally invasive surgery shift, da Vinci SP will challenge us all to rethink and redefine what is possible and how we can improve surgical care to our patients." The da Vinci SP system is FDA cleared for urologic procedures, including prostate, cancer, kidney cancer, and advanced urinary tract reconstruction surgery.
Design Challenges
Statistics show that nearly everyone, at some time in their life, is likely to visit an operating room for a surgical procedure. Minimally invasive care isn’t just about providing a minimally invasive procedure, ultimately it is about minimizing the impact of surgery on the lives of patients. Da Vinci SP was created with the patient in mind to advance and enable new approaches for minimally invasive care – especially in constrained areas where traditional MIS may not be a viable option today. The introduction of the da Vinci SP® system moves surgery forward by addressing key challenges clinicians face today. Many MIS procedures require intricate work within a constrained area. This is where the da Vinci SP system excels – delivering fully-wristed surgical instruments and the first fully-wristed endoscope through a small, one-inch access port. Some surgical procedures are especially challenging from an access perspective. With the instruments and camera consolidated in one arm, the da Vinci SP system can reach anywhere within 360° from one port placement - helping the surgeon achieve broad versatility of access.
