    William Beaumont Army Medical Center performed the first robotic surgery in the Department of Defense using the daVinci Xi surgical system, a minimally-invasive robotic surgery system, at WBAMC, May 2. The surgeon-manipulated system allows for surgeons to operate with articulating instruments which bend and rotate far greater than the human wrist through an incision smaller than a centimeter.
