How does it work?

From the surgeon console, the surgeon guides the robot’s every movement. Using a state-of-the-art camera, the surgeon sees high-resolution, three-dimensional images for enhanced accuracy.

The robot enables the surgeon to access vital organs through very small incisions. Using micro-instruments, the robot translates the surgeon’s hand motions to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures. These specialized instruments allow for an even greater range of motion than the human hand, resulting in unprecedented precision and control.
