Laparoscopic surgery is an advanced surgical technique that allows a surgeon to operate through a few tiny incisions, sometimes as small as a few millimeters. They are able to view the inside of a patient using a microscopic camera that is placed in the body through a thin flexible tube called a laparoscope.
The da Vinci® Surgical System is designed to provide surgeons with enhanced capabilities, including high-definition 3D vision and a magnified view. Dr. Reed controls the da Vinci® System, which translates his hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of the tiny surgical instruments.
