The First Remote, Robotic Surgery

On September 7, doctors in the United States performed the first long distance operation, with surgeons in New York performing a laparoscopic cholecystectomy on a patient in France. The surgery was successful, and the patient was discharged from the hospital with no complications 48 hours later. Needless to say, the potential uses of such remote, robotic technology are boundless, not only in medical settings but in search and rescue missions, scientific discovery missions, and countless other arenas. The following resources cover the recent surgery and provide some additional information on the technology.
