Da Vinci Robot Might Be Doing Your Next Surgery

The FDA has just recently approved of the da Vinci Xi System – a robotic surgeon that might be doing your next operation. The robot is the 4th in its line and is by far the most advanced surgical robot on the market. So why would you want the Terminator operating on you? Well, this robot not only has the smallest arms of its kind, but its surgical arm can do a full 180 degree rotation. The instruments attached to the arms like the endospores and tools to make incisions have been updated to the most advanced on the market which in turn eliminates the need for large open incisions which are common for abdominal surgeries. Cancer patients will also be receiving a large benefit from this as the convenience of the smaller parts would allow a large decrease in the number of surgeries required to address cancer removal.
