How robotic-assisted surgery works

Instead of a long incision, the surgeon makes incisions that are just 1 to 2 centimeters–less than an inch. The robot's arms, which hold the surgical instruments, and a camera are inserted through these tiny incisions.

The camera inside your body magnifies the picture 10 times and transmits the image in 3D high-definition, so your surgeon has an excellent view. The maneuverability, precise reactions of the robot and visual clarity make it possible for your surgeon to operate confidently, with no need for a large incision.
