da Vinci Robotic Surgery

The Cutting-Edge in Technology



If you have considered having a procedure done using da Vinci robotic technology, you may have several questions as to how the system works. At miVIP, we want you to be fully informed of your surgical options before making a decision. Below are some da Vinci Robotic Surgery FAQs that may be helpful in answering several of the most common questions regarding this advanced technology.

What are your surgical options?

At miVIP Surgical Centers, we offer a wide variety of options, including minimally invasive robotic and non-robotic procedures. Traditional procedures often use large incisions to gain access to the surgical site; however, our da Vinci robotic procedures and minimally invasive non-robotic procedures require only small incisions, leading to fewer complications.

What are the benefits of using da Vinci Robotics?

When compared to traditional surgical procedures, da Vinci technology offers our patients many benefits, including the following:

  • Less Pain
  • Less Blood Loss
  • Quicker Recovery Period
  • Shorter Hospital Stay
  • Less Scaring
  • Lower Risk of Infection

In many cases, minimally invasive robotic surgery will have you back to your normal routine in no time.

How are traditional laparoscopic surgical procedures limited?

While traditional laparoscopic procedures are less invasive than their predecessors, they are still somewhat limiting. During a laparoscopic surgical procedure, the physician only has access to the surgical site through a few small incisions, limiting their visibility. It also decreases the surgeon’s motility by limiting their range of motion.

Is da Vinci Robotics approved by the Federal Drug Administration?

Yes. The da Vinci Surgical System has been approved by the FDA. Thousands of knowledgeable surgeons from around the world have been specially trained on this innovative medical technology and are able to achieve superior results with its use.

What types of procedures are able to be performed with da Vinci Technology?

This sophisticated equipment is able to perform urologic, thoracoscopic, bariatric, gynecologic and general surgery procedures.

How do I know if I am a good candidate for the procedure?

Our reputable surgeons will evaluate each patient to determine if they are a good candidate for a procedure using da Vinci robotics. During the extensive testing process, the surgeon will ensure that you have no underlying conditions that may compromise your health when undergoing surgery. Some candidates who have been turned down for traditional laparoscopic procedures may qualify for the minimally invasive robotic procedure.

Are da Vinci Surgical Procedures covered by insurance?

Our helpful team at miVIP will be happy to call your medical insurance company to determine whether your plan covers robot-assisted minimally invasive surgery. With our free benefit checking service, you can call us at any time, day or night to find out this information.
