Caleb Nash, a Geneseo student, submitted the winning name in the ‘Name the Robot’ contest hosted by the Hammond-Henry Hospital surgical department. Nash named the department’s da Vinci® robotic surgical system, ‘Hammy’.
da Vinci® Robotic System
The da Vinci® Robotic System, also known as “Hammy”, utilizes robotic, computer and optical technologies to assist surgeons with operations. The movements of the system are controlled by the surgeon, who sits at a console in the same room. Its three-dimensional high-definition vision system, special instruments, and computer software allow the surgeon to operate with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity, and control.
