Robot-assisted heart surgery. Surgeon operating a robot during heart surgery. The screen at upper left shows his view through the eyepieces, which provide a magnified view of the operating site. Using robots and remote controlled devices allows much smaller incisions to be made, which speeds the recovery process. It also allows for a great deal of precision, beyond that possible by hand. Photographed at the Mondor Hospital in France.
