Thanks to this ultra-modern technology the surgeon can perform extremely precise operations using four robotic arms. The technique consists of the surgeon’s console for the operating surgeon and a patient side cart set up next to the patient with the surgical instruments and optics. The doctor performs the surgery using the control panel, which also houses an optical system. In contrast to the conventional minimally invasive methods, the optical system provides a 3D high-definition view. The instruments are controlled by means of two handles looking like joysticks. The special instruments with which the operation is performed are put ready on the patient’s side-cart. For the doctor who uses the da Vinci system it is possible to control the camera as well as the three robotic instrument arms. Next to the operating surgeon, the team consists of an assistant, an instrument setter and an anaesthetist.
Thanks to this ultra-modern technology the surgeon can perform extremely precise operations using four robotic arms. The robotic arms with attached instruments that enter the body through four small incisions are controlled from the surgeon’s console. The wrist movements of the instruments allow greater freedom of movement than the human hand. Hand tremor is filtered out allowing the surgeon to perform extremely precise operations. The da Vinci robot provides a three-dimensional view and optimal control.
