Core Technology of the da Vinci Surgical System

The da Vinci® Surgical System enables doctors to perform surgery in a manner never before experienced. With the surgeon sitting at a console a few feet from the patient, da Vinci translates that surgeon’s hand movements into corresponding micro-movements of instruments inside the patient’s body.
