How robotic surgery works
Robotic-assisted surgery does not mean that a robot will be performing your operation. Rather, a surgeon operates from a console in the operating suite.
The robot is equipped with tiny, finely tuned instruments. These instruments are inserted through a series of small incisions.
The console accounts for tremors in the surgeon’s movements and gives the surgeon greater dexterity. It also provides surgeons a clear, three-dimensional view, so they can operate in unparalleled precision.
