Advances in Robotic Surgery

Sam Kaufman, CEO of Henderson Hospital, and Dr. Kevin Sharif, orthopedic spine surgeon, discuss the latest robotic technology being used at Henderson Hospital.

The da Vinci System

The da Vinci Surgical System consists of a surgeon's console, a patient-side cart with four interactive robotic arms, a high-performance 3D, high-definition vision system and the system's EndoWrist® instruments. Using advanced robotic technology, the da Vinci System is designed to translate a surgeon's hand movements into precise movements of the EndoWrist instruments.
