A robot performed autonomous dental implant surgery on a patient for the first time last week. The hour-long surgery, which took place in Xian, Shaanxi province, China, was performed without intervention from medical staff, who were on hand in case something went wrong.

Computer Vision Algorithm Studies Laparoscopic Procedures to Understand What’s Going On |

Laparoscopic surgeries are often automatically recorded from the point of view of the endoscope’s lens. This is thanks to built-in recording equipment that accompanies many commercial endoscopic systems.

Robot hearts: medicine’s new frontier

On a cold, bright January morning I walked south across Westminster Bridge to St Thomas’ Hospital, an institution with a proud tradition of innovation: I was there to observe a procedure generally regarded as the greatest advance in cardiac surgery since the turn of the millennium – and one that can be performed without a surgeon.

Scopis Introduces Mixed Reality to Simplify Surgical Navigation

Scopis has announced a mixed reality surgical navigation system that uses the Microsoft HoloLens for spinal surgery applications.

It combines current surgical navigation technologies with Microsoft’s augmented reality headset to show surgeons where they’re drilling into in real-time, without shifting their gaze away from the surgical field

Robotic Microsurgeon for Cochlear Implantations Tested in Switzerland | Medgadget

Robotic surgical assistants have become commonplace in many hospitals. Robotics has the potential to give surgeons the dexterity, patience, and sensitivity that humans can never achieve with their own hands.

Researchers at the University of Bern in Switzerland have been working on an image guided microsurgery robot that can perform highly sensitive cochlear implantations.
