Surgical Robots

We’re stepping into the future of medicine with a look at the surgical robotics being developed at the Johns Hopkins Engineering Research Center for Computer-Integrated Surgical Systems and Technology.

Many of these techniques are leading to significantly quicker and less painful recoveries while giving surgeons more flexibility than ever before.
