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. A human team controlled the bots from a dedicated workstation via video control with 3D HD image quality. 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.
