The da Vinci robort is a devise that scales down a surgeons hand movement in order to allow him to perform operations using tiny incisions. This innovation allows for less tissue damage and a much quicker recovery period for patients. There are over 200,000 being used for surgical procedures today.
The newest innovation to the da Vinci Robot is the MScore which assesses the robot to more reliably predict whether new surgeons are ready to operate on patients. MScore compares the skills of novice surgeon to that of an experiences surgeon. This is a great tool for surgeon’s own assessment and continuing growth and skill.
