Robots for Complex Surgical Procedures
The main intention of robotic technology is to build artificial humans. They can be said to have succeeded to a great extent in this regard. Many robots can now perform many of the tasks that humans can perform. In actual fact, they have successfully replaced humans in certain tasks and many industries prefer to install robots than employ humans for the same purpose. Robot installation may however be too expensive for quite a number of industries. Despite the huge progress that had been made in robotic technology, robots are still far from replacing humans in lots of areas. Even areas in which robots have replaced humans still require human management, as such robots replacing humans still need to be monitored, controlled and maintained by humans.
Robots not have wide range of applications. They are useful in practically all areas of human endeavor. They are useful in the health sector and they can even play games. They have been discovered to be the best for certain surgical procedures, since such procedures are just too complex for human surgeons to carry out alone. Be that as it may, they still need to be controlled by humans for them to be able to handle such surgeries. Involvement of robots in surgeries helps a great deal to reduce mistakes that can lead to loss of lives.
Additionally, surgeons are able to manage highly complex surgeries with the aid of robots and such robotic involvement increases rate of success recorded in such surgeries. For example, robots have been used in surgical management of prostate cancer. Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of death among men in the United States. At least, one out of every six males in the United States will develop prostate cancer in their life time. With the involvement of robots, such prevalence can be reduced and prostate cancer can be adequately operated.
