Doctors and other representatives from UHC were at the Meadowbrook Mall on Saturday to show the community a new surgical technique that involves using robotic hands.
Folks at the mall got a chance to see the advancement in "Robotic Surgery," also known as da Vinci Surgery. Along with the demonstration, shoppers got a chance to try using the robotic hands. UHC set up a game for participants and whoever was able to complete their task with the robotic hands the fastest would win a 32 inch LCD TV.
"I like the rubber band part--stretching the rubber band trying to put it around there. Now it was a little hard to get the colors in context with the right trays for the jacks, but it was pretty good. It was a lot of fun. Hopefully he becomes a doctor one day," said Mike Crayton.
His son Logan added, "My favorite part was trying to have a chance to win the TV."
Doctors said the da Vinci Surgical System is an exciting improvement for health care since it will help surgeons make fewer mistakes when they need to make very precise moves
