Understanding Robotic Surgery
Some patients become alarmed when introduced to the idea of robotic surgery,
believing that machines will be operating on them. This is not the case.
The daVinci HD Surgical System acts as an extension of a surgeon who remains
in control of the procedure. The machines never move independently—doctors
control the movement of the machines.
This technology gives these doctors the digital tools needed to perform
minimally invasive procedures that were previously not possible. Only
small incisions are made and computer-controlled instruments are able
to make incredibly precise, subtle movements to best treat the patient.
