First All Robotic Surgery Performed


Canada's McGill University Health Center has performed the first all robot operation. The prostatectomy was done by a surgical DaVinci while a robot named McSleepy handled the anesthesia.

Dr. TM Hemmerling claims that the team will use the results to learn and plans on using the knowledge on different types of surgery in the future.
