Maj. Lauren Buck, 81st Surgical Operations Squadron general surgeon, operates using the da Vinci Xi during a ventral hernia repair surgery March 28, 2017, on Keesler Air Force Base, Miss. The da Vinci Xi robot system, which cost approximately $2 million, translates the surgeon’s hand motions into smaller more precise movements. The robot’s tiny instruments create more internal space inside the patient’s body during the operation. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Jenay Randolph)
