Robotic Brain Surgery

Standard

Would you go under the knife if it was held by a Robot?  Or would you rather trust the quivering hand of a real live physician?  Space Shuttle tech works on brain tumors

I think this is very fascinating.  I once wrote a paper on Robotic Surgery for a class and it’s amazing what they can do.  They can scale down the movements to operate on unborn babies still in the mothers womb.  Some operations are already being performed in the US by the De vinci Robot.  Just think, as technology grows, so will the potential for these surgical machines!  At some point we may yet get to the point were remote surgery could be possible!  Imagine, soldiers in a war zone being operated on by a surgeon that is safe from harm or astronauts on a space station receiving care from earth.  Possible?
