1. A surgical robotic system, comprising:
(a) a robotic device sized to be positioned completely within a patient, the device comprising:
(i) a body component further comprising a first shoulder component and a second shoulder component;
(ii) a first movable segmented robotic arm comprising a housing with at least one motor disposed within the housing and operationally connected to the body component by way of the first shoulder component;
(iii) a second movable segmented robotic arm comprising a housing with at least one motor disposed within the housing and operationally connected to the body component by way of the second shoulder component;
(iv) a first operational component operationally connected to the first robotic arm; and
(v) a second operational component operationally connected to the second robotic arm;
(b) a support structure configured to be positionable such that a portion of the support structure is disposed within the patient and a portion is disposed outside of the patient, wherein the support structure is operably coupled to the body component; and
(c) an operations system for control of the robotic device from outside the patient by way of the support structure, the operations system in electrical communication with the robotic device.
