  • Robotic Surgery

    Robot-assisted surgery was developed to overcome limitations of minimally invasive surgery.

    Instead of directly moving the instruments the surgeon uses a computer console to manipulate the instruments attached to multiple robot arms.

    The computer translates the surgeon’s movements, which are then carried out on the patient by the robot.
