How does my surgeon use the da Vinci?

To operate using the da Vinci, your surgeon makes tiny incisions in your body and inserts miniaturized instruments and a high-definition three-dimensional camera. Then, from a nearby console, your surgeon manipulates those instruments to perform the operation.

During a da Vinci procedure, your surgeon uses master controls to manipulate the instruments, and the instruments translate your surgeon's movements into precise movements inside your body. Your surgeon is in control the whole time; the surgical system responds to the input given.
