Robots guided by doctors’ hands
Saturday, March 15, 2008
Rocky Mount -- Unlike some robots, the da Vinci Surgical system cannot operate by itself but must be manipulated by a surgeon. The system can’t make decisions or perform any maneuvers without the surgeon’s input. A surgeon sits at a console, looks into binocular-like lenses and turns knobs that manipulate robotic arms containing a tiny camera and surgical tools. Nash Health Care Systems is one of 13 health care institutions in North Carolina that has the system, according to Dr. Wiley Nifong, director of surgical robotics at Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University.
