The medical industry is putting on automation to make hospitals worthy with surgical robots that can take advantage of the competition and cure patients in less time with less money. Today surgical robots are making things possible that the industry didn’t even think some years ago. Following are some of the developments with the robotic surgeons:

The PRECEYES Surgical System: The University of Oxford conducted a trial of the PRECEYES Surgical system. The test was done on twelve patients. Some of them needed membranes removed from their eyes and some had blood accumulated underneath the retina due to age-related macular degeneration. Half of the patients were operated by conventional procedures and the rest received robotic surgeries. The robotic surgeries were as successful as the manual ones sometimes even more effective.

The CorPath System: Local hospitals in remote areas don’t get access to urgent medical care easily. The shortage of skilled surgeons is one of the reasons. The problem can be solved with the combination of robotics and virtual reality (VR) which can help surgeons to prepare. Read More…
