Caption: Surgical robot. Da Vinci surgical robot system in the operating theatre. Its arms terminate in mechanical "wrists" that can reproduce the range of movement of a human wrist, and can be fitted with a variety of surgical instruments. A surgeon can control the robot while viewing the surgical site through an endoscope (flexible viewing instrument, output seen on monitor at far left)) to carry out complex procedures through incisions less than 1 centimetre across. This kind of minimally invasive surgery makes the patient's recovery quicker and less painful.
