The da Vinci SP®(Single Port) system is an advanced platform that enables surgeons to perform robotic-assisted, minimally invasive surgery in areas where deep and narrow access is challenging today. The system is guided by the surgeon as a natural extension of the surgeon’s eyes and hands via cutting-edge robotics technology.

  • 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.

  • We strive to provide solutions that feel natural and intuitive to our users. For this reason, da Vinci systems start with the human hand – working through physics and algorithms to reproduce in our robotic instruments the commanded motions of the surgeon’s expert hands in a way that feels natural and intuitive to them. We intend that the eye is only drawn to a place to touch, a button to press, or useful information. This visual clarity strives for a language which can be quickly learned, easily discovered, and lower the cognitive burden of using the system.

  • A quote from 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”

  • In robotics, simplicity can be expressed through a combination of digital and physical: For example, our cart drive system uses sensors to respond to the pressure from the user’s hands. This makes the 1,800 lb. weight of the robot patient cart something you can guide with your fingertips.
