Recommended Posts

"A trial of a new high-precision surgical robot used to operate on women with breast cancer found the system is safe.

"Super-small: It’s the first human trial of a robot for “supermicrosurgery,” a term referring to surgery on vessels that range from 0.3 to 0.8 millimeters.

"It’s a form of surgery that only a small number of surgeons worldwide can perform."
