Arizona hospital introduces robotic heart surgery program

Tucson, Ariz.-based Northwest Medical Center's robotic heart surgery program was profiled by local NBC affiliate KVOA.com.

The hospital is the only one in Arizona that has such a program.

Surgeons operated on Craig Jones, and he left the hospital three days after the procedure.

Unlike with traditional surgery, the robot only needed 8 millimeters to perform a coronary bypass surgery.
