Robot Surgery Today
July 30, 2009 1 Comment
By the time this post has gone up I’m likely to have completed or be in robotic Laparoscopic surgery for an obstruction in my uretero-pelvic junction. I’m guessing it’s going to look something like that picture above.
In all seriousness, this surgery isn’t life threatening, just a correction of a vestigial problem. My doctor is experienced and the surgery has a very high rate of success, so I’m not too worried. If you’d like to know more about real robotic Laparoscopic surgery, I suggest you watch this facsinating TED documentary about the history and future of surgery.
