The surgeon can view a three-dimensional image of the operation site from an endoscope (flexible viewing instrument). The da Vinci system allows precise control of surgical tools through an incision just one centimetre wide. Da Vinci was designed by Intuitive Surgical Incorporated of California, USA. Photographed during a heart bypass operation at the CHU Saint-Pierre Hospital, Brussels, Belgium.
