Robot-assisted surgery. Surgeon assisting during a Da Vinci robotic surgical operation. The Da Vinci system enables a surgeon (not shown) to perform a minimally invasive surgery with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control. While sitting at an ergonomic console (see C023/8210), a surgeon controls the system, which translates his hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside the patient's body. This procedure is a thyroidectomy, the surgical removal of all or part of the thyroid gland.
