Robotic Surgery

Today, you’ll find high-tech, robotic surgical systems commonly used in many hospitals. Even though the surgery itself might be performed by a robot, the surgeon controlling the instruments must have a clear view of the surgical field. This is typically accomplished with an endoscope that contains a camera for imaging and a light guide for illumination.

Light guides made from bundles of SCHOTT PURAVIS® glass fibers deliver pure white light and excellent color rendering. This creates high-quality illumination that provides clinicians with a true-to-life view of tissue. The unique properties of these fibers are helping current and next-generation robotic surgery systems provide the very best surgical outcomes.
