Introduction to Robotic Surgery (Male) - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT:
Robotic surgery is a minimally invasive operation performed by surgeons manipulating robotic arms through several tiny incisions called ports. A robotic surgical machine consists of several main components including the console, where the surgeon sits while performing the operation, the patient-side cart with four interactive robotic arms and attached surgical instruments, and a high-definition 3D vision system. This system allows surgeons to make precise, controlled movements in your body with increased vision and dexterity. During robotic surgery, your surgeon will insert a high-definition 3D camera through one of the ports. The camera provides a magnified view of the surgical area. Then your surgeon will insert specialized surgical tools held by the remaining robotic arms through the other ports. Seated at the computer console, your surgeon will view the surgical area through a viewfinder and move the surgical tools and camera with joystick-like controls and foot pedals. Your surgeon's motions will generate computer input to guide the motion of the robot arms and surgical tools. Advantages of the system include controlled accurate movement of the surgical tools, prevention of unintentional hand shake or tremor, ability to operate in space is smaller than a human hand, enhanced visibility of the surgical area, and less patient blood loss and scarring.

"Thank you very much for the great work on the medical exhibits. Our trial
resulted in a $16 million verdict for a 9 year old boy with catastrophic
injuries, and the medical illustrations definitely played key role in the

"It is my experience that it's much more effective to show a jury what
happened than simply to tell a jury what happened. In this day and age where
people are used to getting information visually, through television and
other visual media, I would be at a disadvantage using only words.
I teach a Litigation Process class at the University of Baltimore Law Schooland use [Medical Legal Art's] animation in my class. Students always saythat they never really understood what happened to [to my client] until theysaw the animation.
Animations are powerful communication tools that should be used wheneverpossible to persuade juries."

"Medical illustrations are essential during trial for any medical malpractice case. The people at MLA have the uncanny ability of creating medical illustrations that simplify the most complex of medical concepts and human anatomy to a lay audience. The exhibits of MLA allow experts to easily describe complex concepts and human anatomy in a manner that could
not be done otherwise.
In addition, their custom illustrations show in great detail the extent of
injuries suffered and the devastating effects they have had on the client's
anatomy. These custom illustration can show, side by side, the body before
and after a catastrophic injury. The effect of this juxtaposition is
unmatched by any testimony that can be adduced at the time of trial.
Even jurors after trial have commented on the ease with which they grasp
medical concepts and anatomy once the MLA exhibits were introduced and
used by my experts. Even judges who have "seen it all" are thoroughly
impressed by the detail and sophistication of the illustrations.
Medical Legal Art creates medical demonstrative evidence (medical
illustrations, drawings, pictures, graphics, charts, medical animations,
anatomical models, and interactive presentations) for use during legal
proceedings, including research, demand letters, client conferences,
depositions, arbitrations, mediations, settlement conferences, mock jury
trials and for use in the courtroom. We do not provide legal or medical
advice. If you have legal questions, you should find a lawyer with whom you
can discuss your case issues. If you have medical questions, you should seek the advice of a healthcare provider.
