The Era of Surgical Robots May Have Come
There is a ranking of the top ten jobs that a robot is not easy to replace. Doctors, psychologists, and teachers are the three safest jobs and the least likely to be replaced by robots. However, robots have quietly replaced part of the work of surgeons. Surgeon robots have two advantages: First, the suture technology is better. Second, more challenging tasks can be completed. Surgeon robots can perform many complex operations. Robots can obtain medical images that are difficult to obtain. In minimally invasive surgery, they can obtain clearer medical information maps. The robotic wrist is more flexible, filtering unnecessary vibrations, and retrieving data in a small space in the human body.
A Children's Health Center in Washington stated that they have successfully performed two surgical operations to suture the intestines inside and outside the body. Surgeons set up procedures in advance, supervise them nearby, reduce the contact between doctors and patients, and can stop the operation at any time. The robot is connected with sensors and staplers. The robot arm is more flexible, and the robot is also insufficient for surgery. The robot can perform soft tissue surgery procedures and suture according to the procedure. However, the robot does not understand teamwork and takes longer to perform surgery. Robots are replacing more and more jobs. Multilingual robots, robot bartenders on Caribbean cruises, luggage transport robots at airports, receptionist robots, car assembly line robotic arm robots, long-arm robots in logistics distribution centers , Front desk service robots, library museum robots, restaurant service robots, chat robots to accompany the elderly, and story-telling robots to children. Artificial intelligence technology has been applied in the practice of surgical medicine to help surgeons collect information and images. Surgical arm robots can reach the narrow spaces in the human body. Robots can replace part of the work of surgeons and do some more challenging medical tasks in medicine.
The era of robots has come, and the labor market has quietly undergone some changes. Many complicated jobs will be replaced by robots, and robots have also brought many new occupations.
The purpose of this is not to allow the surgeon to leave the surgery room, but to reduce the burden on the surgeon by automating certain stages of the surgery, and it may even increase the success rate of the surgery where needs improvement.
Robots are more accurate than humans in certain surgery, such as inserting a needle into a bone (which is a particularly risky task when replacing knee and hip joints). It is hoped that automated robots can improve the accuracy of other tasks such as incisions or sutures, and reduce the risk of overworked surgeons.
