To remove tumours and perform surgeries where their hands cannot reach, doctors are now using 5 mm thin robotic hands to access the affected part in a minimally invasive way.

Imported from America, the sophisticated Da Vinci Surgical System provides special wristed instruments that can mimic the real-time hand movements of a surgeon while operating upon a patient.

Away from the patient, the surgeon sits inside a console where he sees everything through a 3D high-definition vision system.
