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.
