Da Vinci robot surgeon performing keyhole (laparoscopic) surgery. This remote controlled surgical system, developed and produced by the US company Intuitive Surgical, has four robotic arms that carry tools specific to the operation (here a laparascope) and other more general surgical implements for procedures such as suturing (stitching) and clamping. A specially trained surgeon operates the system from an ergonomically designed console using remote joysticks with force-feedback. Photographed in Nice, France.
