What happens during robotic surgery?

When many people think about robotic surgery, they envision a blocky silver robot hovering over an exam table wielding sharp, shiny surgical tools. In reality, your (human) surgeon remains in complete control of the device from start to finish. 

The da Vinci system has three parts. The patient cart holds a full range of surgical equipment. Robotic arms can hold any of these tools and perform surgical techniques with a degree of precision and flexibility that even the most trained human hand could never achieve. 

A vision cart holds the external monitor that projects real-time imaging throughout the procedure. The surgeon console is where your surgeon sits and directs each and every action of the robotic system. Crystal-clear 3DHD imaging guides the process.
