Robot-assisted cancer surgery. Oncology surgeons removing a cancer patient's prostate (prostatectomy) using a Da Vinci robotic system. The Da Vinci system enables a surgeon to perform minimally invasive surgery with enhanced vision precision dexterity and control. The surgeon controls the system from an ergonomic console (shown here), which translates his or her hand movements into smaller more precise movements of tiny surgical instruments inside the patient's body. Photographed in the Urology Department of Spasokukotsky City Hospital No. Russia.
