For this last assignment I observed removal of the gallbladder. This was a robotic surgery performed with the DaVinci machine. Before going to surgery I was excited to view robotic surgery because this meant I would see more of the procedure ( since it is projected to a screen ). But when I was in the OR I was very intrigued with the machine, so much I almost forgot to watch the surgery.
While each of the three illustrations can seem separate I wanted to collage them together. I thought it was important to show the connection between the viewport, the surgeon and the robotic surgery machine.
