Robotic surgery. Illustration of surgeons using a robotic surgical console to carry out an operation. The main operating console is at bottom centre, with an anaesthetist at upper left. The surgeon at lower centre is changing tools on one of the robotic arms. Such systems enable a surgeon to perform minimally invasive surgery with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control. While sitting at the ergonomic console, the surgeon controls the system, which translates his or hers hand movements into precise movements of tiny instruments inside the patient's body.
