Would you dare to let a robot operate on you?
in recent years
There are also many surgical robots emerging
Assist in some high-precision surgeries
Among them, the most famous surgical robot is Da Vinci.
Da Vinci has gone through four generations
Has been able to assist cardiothoracic surgery, kidney, urinary system
Gynecological and other types of surgery
Recently, a new surgical robot has also begun to enter the operating room
Completed his first cochlear implant surgery
Development of cochlear implant surgery
has formed a more mature surgery
A cochlear implant is placed in the inner ear of the hearing impaired
let it hear
The original surgical procedure was as follows:
Cut a big incision behind the ear
Flip the flap back
Make a bone bed in the skull with an electric drill
Put the cochlear implant in
This operation is not only time-consuming, but also traumatic
And if you are not careful, you can cause permanent damage to the patient.
The robot solution is not so troublesome.
Make a hole behind the ear
Then, put the tube in
Make a hole in the inner ear cochlea
put cochlear implant
Alright, you’re done
Different from the traditional “Da Vinci surgical robot”
Such robots are usually good at analyzing the structure of the surgical field or performing fluoroscopy
The ultimate goal of developers is to make it able to think actively
Robots that perform surgery independently
Although Robotic technology is so amazing, it has been questioned. If the robotic surgical system encounters unpredictable problems such as hacking, machine failure, and system logic disorder, how should doctors deal with it and how should the responsibilities be divided, doctor? Robot manufacturer or engineer? , or the hospital?
