Here again how robotics can help in Healthcare, here something about surgery, pros and

Many of the world’s top surgeons are learning first-hand what they can do with surgical
robots and it’s unlocking a new era in health care.

One experienced surgeon says “If you’re
sitting in the robot you feel like you have control over all the technology around you”.

The surgeons who use it:

➡️ must be extremely good trained and have practised it a lot

➡️️ can see more and can be more precise and minimise fatigue due sitting position

➡️ follow multi-step pathways and gain more information about the structures

➡️ have the advantage of precise dissection, 3D vision, tremor filtration

The advantage for the patients:

➡️ certain types of surgeries are less invasive and need shorter time

➡️ reduced pain and discomfort after the surgery

➡️ shorter hospitalisation, greater degree of movement

➡️ faster recovery time and return to normal activities

The disadvantages:

➡️ Surgical time is in some areas likely to be slightly longer than traditional surgery e.g. joint
replacements, and exposing patients to theoretically greater risk of infection

➡️ Any computerised system is only as good as the information that is inputted into it. This
includes e.g. the quality of the initial CT scans

➡️high costs of the surgical equipment

Today’s surgical robots extend surgeon’s capacities, they filter out hand tremors and allow
manoeuvres that even the best surgeon couldn’t pull off with laparoscopic surgery’s typical
long-handled tools.

The importance of robots in surgery becomes higher, but won’t completely replace doctors.
