Robots in the Operating Room at Israel’s Rabin Medical Center

Surgical robotics is an advanced technology and phenomenal in its achievements, that combines tiny instruments with a sophisticated camera attached to the surgeon’s wrist to provide 3D images in real time. Due to their structure, these surgical robotic instruments have a better range of movement, providing surgeons better ergonomics and higher stability. From a work station console, a surgeon uses a joystick to control the instruments, which allows more controlled movements that enhance a surgeon’s skills and precision.

This cutting edge technology has been implemented in many departments at Rabin Medical Center.  Surgical robotics are part of the everyday routine at Rabin’s Helen Schneider Women’s Hospital and Rabin’s Urology, Surgery B, and Otolaryngology Departments that keeps Rabin Medical Center at the  forefront of modern medicine.
