The first completely robotic surgery was successful

If you had to lie down on the operating table, would you like to see on a human or robot? In any case, until the robotics of the filigree of the progress has not yet reached, but the DaVinci robot is now successfully functioning as a "hand of the surgeon, never tremble and guide the tool with precision accuracy. However, doctors at McGill University Health Centre (McGill University Health Centre, MUHC) have gone further to fully recover operating on the human presence - for anesthesia responsible designated robot McSleepy, who "practice" since 2008.

Prostatectomy (surgery to remove the prostate) in the wall of the Centre, became the world's first completely robotic surgery. «DaVinci allows the doctor to work remotely and accurate way to position the instruments, while being arbitrarily far from the operated" - says the chief urologist at MUHC Aprikyan A. (A. Aprikian).
"To provide anesthesia in robotic surgery to remove the prostate is extremely difficult, largely because of the specific positioning of the patient's compliance and a high degree of muscle relaxation required for compliance with the best possible conditions during the operation," added Dr Hemmerling. Automated anesthesia with McSleepy guarantees high quality of the procedure, regardless of the subjective experience of the doctor. Of course, there is still much to develop - the robots used in surgery for a long time, but only now we could rely on them in carrying out operations. " Dr. Aprikyan adds: "This experience will allow us to perform surgery faster, safer and more accurate, which ultimately has a positive effect on the patient's condition."

  5. if i should answer that question about seeing a robot or a human, then i would certainly like to see a human, would make me more relaxed i think, on the other hand robots might not make all the mistakes a human could do.

  12. I kind of like the idea of having a steady robot doing the work while the surgeon controls it.
