Surgical Robots- 1

 Robotics is not just LFRs & Grid navigators. The Pick'n'Place Robots of yesteryears have evolved into Remote operated Micro-surgeons.....

 Surgical Surgical Robots and Robotics techniques are fast replacing in-house surgeons by facilitating the same Surgeons to operate on a patient 'anywhere' in the world, from wherever the surgeon is at that moment. This is an astounding miracle of Robotics- no more waiting to aggregate a group of expert surgeons around the Surgery table- they can supervise and successfully conduct Surgery from anywhere !!
 While the present generation of Medical Robots are expensive, they are fast approaching affordability due to increased interest and installations around the world. There have been significant reduction in Cost of these robotic systems and should reduce further in the future.

The recent advances in Medical Robots is due to the perfect blend  of  Mechatronics, Electronics, Physics, Embedded systems , Computer science and Software; the result is Robotics & Autonomous sytems , Intelligent systems etc., that have brought Robots from the long restricted Automobile industry into the wide user areas ranging from complex Surgery to ones own kitchen.
