vinci29Surgeon. Anaesthetist. Nurse. Patient. Robot. These days, not everyone in the operating room is human.

Traditionally, for many procedures, patients would be opened up with large incisions during surgery. Laproscopy — also known as keyhole surgery — made those incisions far smaller. Now, in a growing number of hospitals around the world, surgeons are getting extra support from robotic systems that allow them to carry out precise procedures through tiny openings in their patients’ bodies, giving less scarring and a shorter recovery time.
