Robotic surgical implements used by the da Vinci robot surgeon during minimally invasive surgery (MIS). Da Vinci is a remotely controlled robot, which gives surgeons precise control over surgical tools through an incision just one centimeter wide. The surgeon, who views the surgical site through the robot's endoscope attachment, controls the robot's arms. Such remote control gives more precise manipulation of tools than in manual surgery. Intuitive Surgical Incorporated designed Da Vinci in California, USA.
