Robotic Assisted Surgery

The eyes of a hawk are eight to 10 times more powerful than that of a human. This keen eyesight allows hawks to see a very small object from a mile away. In the world of surgery, enhanced vision is a significant advantage, as seeing close up is one of the most important aspects of a surgeon's job.

Our skilled surgeons control every movement. Robotic-assisted surgery provides surgeons with enhanced capabilities, including high-definition 3-D vision and a magnified view thanks to a small camera inserted into the body through a minor incision. The surgeon has control over the robotic system, which translates his or her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments that enter the body through other minor incisions. The instruments mimic—and, at times, exceed—the complex movements of the human hand and wrist.
