How is Robotic Surgery Performed?

A few small keyhole incisions are made and a video camera and instruments are passed through these to visualize and access the site of surgery. The instruments are held by precisely-controlled robotic arms which your doctor operates at a console in the operating room. The video camera provides a 3D view and the robotic arms can be maneuvered in various directions so that surgery is performed with a high level of accuracy.
