Surgery With Technology

Filed under: Uncategorized — toryjohnson30 @ 8:18 pm

On April 30th the first operation using a robot was carried out in the United Kingdom. The robot used allows the doctor to control the procedure using a robotic arm. This is exciting news because operations like this in the future can be much more precise because human coordination isn’t as precise as a robots. Also, this can provide protection for a doctor doing the procedure because in many procedures x-rays are used constantly and doctors are right next to them. But, if a robot is used, a doctor may keep his/her distance from the dangerous x-rays and be able to work more easily because a lead jacket does not need to be worn.
