See how it opens and closes-- that's my left hand moving this.

Last Thursday-- we introduced you to 67 year-old Eugene Bem who has one severely blocked coronary artery. On this day-- instead of open heart bypass-- Eugene is undergoing a minimally invasive single bypass surgery with the daVinci surgical system, used widely in Europe. It is now in FDA trials at 3 US hospitals.

(SOT)

So far so good...he's stable and the operation is proceeding well.

(Track)

In a traditional bypass-- a patient's heart is stopped and their chest bone sawed and pulled apart-- so doctors can first harvest healthy arteries and veins- then graft them to the heart. The procedure is considered safe-- but the trauma on the body can require weeks of recovery-- look at this 12 inch scar on Owen Kane who had surgery last week. He's still sore.

(SOT)

For a while it felt like someone was standing on my chest.

(Track)

In the robotic procedure-- the patient's heart is not stopped and instead of a large cut-- surgeons make 3 small incisions-- the diameter of a pencil.

(Split screen)

The contrast with the open procedure is dramatic-- look at the difference in the scars. The robotic procedure works like this: a 3-D camera goes in one incision-- the robot's two arms in another. The system translates the surgeons actual hand movements into precise micromovements inside the patient. In heart bypass-- the robot frees a chest artery and drags it down over the heart. Surgeons then manually sew the artery onto the heat thru a small 4th incision. Amazingly-- patients can leave the hospital as soon as 24 hours after surgery. Paul Moniz for CBS News))
