By utilizing 5G-enabled robots to perform remote eye laser surgery on rabbits, Chinese researchers have accomplished a major advancement in ophthalmology. The procedure, carried out by doctors from Sun Yat-sen University’s Zhongshan Ophthalmic Centre, took place in Guangzhou, China. All 12 rabbits were treated with a 5G robot under the direction of Professor Lin Haotian.
This success may help equalize ophthalmic progress and access to healthcare resources across the country. In a hopeful outlook, Professor Lin estimates that 5G remote micron ophthalmic surgery could be available to human patients within six months.
Robots are efficent
The employment of 5G robotics in surgical procedures has the potential to improve the efficiency of the surgery for both the surgeon and the patient. Also, AI-powered robots known as Smart Tissue Autonomous Robots (STAR) have demonstrated their prowess by successfully completing complicated procedures on pigs.
These robots, developed by scientists at Johns Hopkins University, were more accurate and reliable than human surgeons. This development may completely change the way people are treated, making it possible to provide patients with more reliable outcomes using cutting-edge technology.
