Surgical robot for microsurgery

Dear Sir or Madam,

Today, surgical robots exist for a wide variety of purposes and procedures. At University of Münster, research is now being conducted into the use of a new type of robot for microsurgery: Surgeons no longer have to stand directly at the operating table, but control the robot remotely. They view the surgical field through a surgical microscope connected to the robot. Read more about the advantages of this in our News.

Stay healthy!
