Caption: Surgical robot. Manipulators of the Da Vinci surgical robot system holding suture line used for surgical stitches. The manipulators have mechanical "wrists" that can reproduce the range of movement of a human wrist. They can be fitted with a variety of surgical instruments for different types of operation. A surgeon can control the robot while viewing the surgical site through an endoscope (flexible viewing instrument) 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.
