|Understanding the Robot|
The St. Elizabeth robot certainly is patient friendly and surgeon friendly! It does exactly what the surgeon directs it to do and its arms are steady, focused, flexible and incredibly precise.
In the operating room, your surgeon sits at a console with a large, high definition TV viewing screen and two master controls that precisely mimic the surgeons movements. When they move left, right, or rotate it directs the robotic arms. The TV screen displays 3D images that can be viewed from numerous angles and the images can be magnified to ten times normal size to further improve precision and vision! Foot pedals allow the surgeon to control the clarity of the image.
