"Amazing technology:" Hospital celebrates new da Vinci robot
August 17, 2023
It may sound strange - a robot to help with surgeries.
And certainly, the da Vinci robotic system itself looks intimidating. Standing taller than a human with its white boom and four robotic arms with instruments attached, it may seem like something out of a sci-fi movie.
"It's a little bit scary looking," Dr. Brianne Crofts admitted, but she added that "at the end of the day, it's not scary."
Even apart from its looks, the thought of a robot performing surgeries may be what comes to people's minds when they hear about the da Vinci machine, which can raise questions and concerns.
