How Does It Work

A surgical team prepares the patient by making several dime-sized incisions in the body. The team equips four robotic arms with tiny surgical tools and a camera and wheels it into place over the operating table.


The surgeon sits nearby at a console, watching a monitor with a magnified, three-dimensional view inside the body. The surgeon uses hand and foot controls to direct the robotic arms. The system translates the surgeon’s maneuvers into real time – twisting, turning and rotating the micro-instruments as the operation demands. Though often called a robot, the technology cannot be programmed or move on its own.​
