da Vinci® Single-Site® Instruments and Accessories

da Vinci® Single-Site® Surgery enables surgeons to operate through a small incision in the patient’s umbilicus during a cholecystectomy, benign, hysterectomy or salpingo-oophorectomy. The end result: virtually scarless surgery.

Single-Site Configuration

  • Compatible with the da Vinci Si Surgical System.
  • Instruments and camera cross within the Single-Site port and use remote center technology to minimize cannula collisions, arm interferences and port-site movement.
  • da Vinci System software automatically detects and re-associates the user’s hands with the instrument tips to create Intuitive® movement through crossed cannulae.

Single-Site Port

  • The five-lumen port provides access for two Single-Site Instruments: the 8.5 mm 3DHD endoscope, a 5/10 mm accessory port and insufflation adaptor.
  • Port enables simple and safe entry through a 1.5 cm incision.

Curved 5 mm Instrument Cannulae

  • Designed to optimize triangulation toward the target anatomy while minimizing external collision of the instruments and camera arms.
  • Curved architecture separates the instrument arms outside the body wall, maximizing range of motion and minimizing instrument crowding.

5 mm Semi-Rigid Instruments

  • Designed to be used through curved cannulae
