  • Robot surgery

    Hello

    I have too much time on my hands so I surf the net. I have no idea if this is going to help people with this condition but it does look promising.

    Oops I am not that smart to figure out how to put the address here. Go to how stuff works.com and type in How robotic surgery will work.

          I can tell you that the robotic surgery works. I live in Olathe Kansas and went to Greenville North Carolina to have Dr. Chitwood do my procedure. I had the procedure done on Dec. 17th and came home on Christmas day, and went back to work this week.

            I guess Robots will be to a surgeon what computers are to people.

            People were fine with pen and pencil, then the typewriter came along and the office was not complete without it – then the computer came along, and now we can not survive nearly as well without it.

            Surgeons used to cut off limbs to fight infection, then they developed tools to allow them to perform much more delicate operations, and now they are moving into a field where the robot is replacing having to dramatically open up the patient.

            Now if someone could only figure out how to live to be two hundred. (see Methuselah.)
