The da Vinci Single Port (SP) is a single arm attached to our surgical robot that expands out into 4 parts during surgery.

This equipment is new, innovative and not currently used anywhere else in Europe.  It will allow our surgeons at the Lister to perform the most complex urology surgeries through a single one inch incision on a patient, as opposed to the four incisions they currently make. 

The da Vinci SP technology’s revolutionary design will lead to the following benefits for our patients: 

  • Less stress and more comfort
  • Less invasive procedure
  • A shorter recovery time
  • Smaller scars

We anticipate about 200 patients each year from Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Essex would benefit from this amazing technology, allowing us to do the same complex operations with patients almost scarless at the end, and will ensure that Lister Hospital offers world leading surgery.
