Surgeon Anno Diegeler completes a cardiac surgery using traditional methods, after the decision is made to switch from the use of a minimally invasive robotic technique at the Herzzentrum Heart Center, Leipzig, Germany. Visiting doctors watch surgeon Volkmar Falk perform a coronary artery bypass graft on a patient lying in the adjoining room, using a tele-manipulated surgical system (called a robotic system by some) designed by Intuitive Surgical Corporation of Mountainview, California, at the Herzzentrum, Leipzig, Germany.
