Robotic Surgery Becoming More Common

Would You Want a Robot to Operate on You?

CNET News reports that robotic surgery is gaining in use and popularity, which frightens and excites me. Intuitive Surgical makes the Da Vinci machines that provide robot-assisted surgical technology and number over 650 in hospitals around the country. Human surgeons direct the machines, which have been cleared for chest, cardiac, urological, and gynecological procedures.

It had to happen sooner or later, but the thought of having a robot work on me like in this picture gives me goosebumps. Then again, a real-live surgeon performing surgery on me gives me goosebumps too. Malpractice and mistakes made by hospitals are so common these days that maybe trusting a robot is the way to go. What do you think?
