for Gastro Intestinal Surgery

Robotic Surgery, or robot-assisted surgery, is minimally invasive, and enhances precision, flexibility and control during the operation. Using robotic surgery, surgeons can perform delicate and complex procedures that may have been difficult or impossible with other methods.
