There are two cameras in robotic surgery system. Unlike the laparoscopic surgery that reflects the surgical site two-dimensionally to a monitor, these two cameras provide three dimensional image of the surgical site for the physician. Therefore, the surgeon also perceives the depth of surgical site.
On the other hand, the surgeon can magnify the image of the surgical site by controlling these high-resolution cameras. Thanks to the high resolution, quality of images does not impair with magnification.
The arms of da Vinci robot have the return angle of 540 to 720 angles. Those arms with a range of motion much higher than human wrist facilitates the movement for the surgeon particularly in narrow and high-risk regions.
On the other hand, even the insignificant shaking in the surgeon’s hands is not sent to the arms as a command. Thus, a precision under a millimeter is ensured.
Tumor surgeries that last too long inevitably cause the surgeon to get extremely tired. In robotic-assisted surgery, the surgeon carries out the procedure by sitting on a chair and sending commands from a console, and thus, his/her concentration to the surgery site is maximized.
Robotic-assisted surgery can be utilized for surgical management of many diseases in many departments such as urology, cardiology, otorhinolaryngology, neurosurgery and general surgery.
Considering these features, robotic-assisted surgery creates a huge difference in surgeries requiring more sensitive movements than laparoscopic surgery.
