A revolutionary robotic hand surgery has been performed at Northwest Hospital in Randallstown, Maryland, using the Da Vinci Surgical System.

The Da Vinci Surgical System has been previously used for gynaecological and prostate conditions, but never for hand surgery.

The system allows the surgeon to use high magnification and ultra-precise movement, which eliminates hand tremors.

It helps the surgeon access smaller structures and perform precise surgeries around the nerves, resulting in less blood loss, less pain and shorter recovery periods, according to medicalnewstoday.com.
