Da Vinci video (in Spanish)

This video shows how the Da Vinci Robot works much better than the photos I published below. It contains surgical images, showing how the anastomosis (or suture) of the bladder and urethra is performed during a robotic radical prostatectomy for prostate cancer. I has been prepared by Dr. Ignacio Castillón, the director of the Laparoscopic department at the ICUA (Instituto de Cirugía Urológica Avanzada).

Surgical images can be unpleasant for some people, so do not access this video if you do not have a strong stomach..

Those who dare to watch it will be amazed and will foresee how will surgery look like in the future.
