One of the beauties of robotics is it is a fantastic tool for teaching with the aid of a duel console (see picture) and the ability to operate on animal organs in the laboratory.
Therefore all of the perfecting and practicing for this procedure can be done in the training room to ensure excellent results for patients.
Mr Adshead uses Robotic Ultrasound to visualise the small masses before they are removed from the kidney.
