The Hospital Clínic incorporates the first robot which will perform surgical procedures by a single orifice

The Hospital Clinic of Barcelona is from today on the first hospital in Spain, and one of the firsts in Europe in using the new surgical robot da Vinci Xi, a high technology equipment specially able to perform gastrointestinal surgical procedures with the minimal invasion for the patient.
