Literally, Seymor can "see more" than a human.
Seymor is one of four high definition da Vinci® Surgical Systems at Dignity Health's Sacramento surgical centers. A second da Vinci robot is located at Mercy San Juan Hospital, a third at Mercy General Hospital and a fourth at Mercy Hospital of Folsom.
