The da Vinci® Si Surgical System (da Vinci) uses robotic technology to provide breakthrough minimally invasive surgical capabilities.
Robotic assisted heart valve repair or replacement surgery using the da Vinci® Si Surgical System (da Vinci) is performed to mend defective or diseased mitral or tricuspid valves.
Robotic assisted surgery with the da Vinci® Si Surgical System (da Vinci) reduces the risks associated with the use of the heart-lung machine—cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB), and allows for a faster recovery.
This minimally invasive procedure, similar to MAZE surgery, uses ablation rather than a scalpel and is performed with the da Vinci® Si Surgical System (da Vinci), a robotic computer technology.

Using Single-Site™ instruments on a da Vinci® Si™ System, surgeons are able to perform a laparoscopic cholecystectomy (removal of the gallbladder) with only one incision, which is approximately one
Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) is a surgical procedure targets the subthalamic nucleus, which is located below the thalamus. The procedure involves implanting a thin electrode into the brain.
Gastric bypass operations that restrict food intake and cause malabsorption result in more weight-loss than those operations that only restrict food intake. Patients who have bypass operations generally lose two–thirds (80%) of their excess weight within two years.
Gastric sleeve surgery or sleeve gastrectomy involves stapling approximately 70-80 percent of the stomach's natural capacity without involving the intestinal tract.
In this video Dr. Bethencourt performs an open-heart surgery to replace a leaking mitrial valve and tricuspid valve and to treat atrial fibrillation.
