A small robotic device used by doctors for a less-invasive surgery was able to reattach a part of a grape skin in a groundbeaking delicate operation.
It seriously is impressive as to how this robotic arm can suture a grape without doing any kind of damage. This is such a GAME CHANGER! This robot won’t ever lose a single game of Operation.
The Da Vinci surgery system, which has recently begun to assist surgeons in hysterectomies and gallbladder removals, was filmed as it sutured the tiny grape fruit back together. The manufacturers named it the “Da Vinci” based on Leonardo da Vinci’s “study of human anatomy” which led to the design of the first ever robot in history.
You can find these robots in hospitals worldwide and in 2012 approximately 200,000 surgeries took place using this incredible medical tool. Surgeons use the device to be able to work effectively inside patients’ bodies using keyhole surgery rather than creating bigger incisions that leave scars.
The same technology which uses miniature instruments that can be used to suture a tiny grape is designed to help perform delicate, minimally invasive surgeries. The robot is remotely operated by a surgeon from a console and is commonly used for prostatectomies, gynecological work, along with cardiac valve repair.
Impressive as its skills may be don’t bow down to our future robot-surgeon-overlords just yet. While it may look like a robot, the da Vinci is actually a sophisticated platform that still needs a human to operate.
Yep, behind every sophisticated and impressive da Vinci robot arm is a strong, wise, and hardworking surgeon still doing his job!However, despite the fragility of a normal grape, which are generally less than an inch long, the fruit is left in almost perfect condition after the robot ties up the last stitch.
The video of the procedure shows a remarkable precision, and that’s not all, because all of the action is taking place inside a small bottle.
