DAVINCI: a robot capable of perfectly stitching together Grape Skin [VIDEO].

Until recently, keyhole surgeries necessitated large incisions to allow surgeons to word comfortably, resulting in unfortunate scars.

DAVINCI is a surgery system, capable of working in a 2 cm surgical hole and of performing complicated and delicate manoeuvres. The ultimate test? Stitching back together the fragile skin of a grape.

DAVINCI passed the test with flying colours. The surgeon is still at the helm of the operation: He or she works at a remote console with devices that mimic regular hand movements while watching 3D camera display. The test involved placing the skin on the grape and tying knots to stitch it together – in a glass bottle. This less-invasive surgery system has started being used only recently, in hysterectomies and gall bladder removals.

The video below shows the remarkable procedure undertaken. A grape skin is only fractions of a centimetre thick, making the whole process even more exceptional. More so, when the grape is left almost perfectly intact. Such a device would cost the hospital around $2 million, with a $100,000 yearly service cost. Watch this remarkable Surgical System at work.
