The benefits of robotically assisted
surgery are well established and
provide numerous advantages over
traditional laparoscopy.  The
da Vinci Surgical System provides
high definition 3D view of anatomy
and structures that is not attainable
with current laparoscopic  
technology.  Additionally, the
advanced "wristed" instrumentation
are aided by the stability and control
of the robotic arms to allow for safe, precise dissecting and suturing.  

Below are two short videos showing the precision a physician and achieve
using the robotic arms.
