Robotic Surgery
This photo provided by Axel Krieger/Science Translational Medicine shows Dr. Azad Shademan and Ryan Decker during supervised autonomous in-vivo bowel anastomosis performed by the Smart Tissue Autonomous Robot (STAR). Scientists have created a robot that stitched up tissue in living animals without a real doctor pulling the strings. Today many hospitals offer robot-assisted surgery, where surgeons control the machines by hand. But much like engineers are designing self-driving cars, the hope is to create autonomous surgical robots that could perform certain jobs all by themselves, freeing surgeons for more complex tasks.
