Robot performs soft-tissue surgery better than humans

A team at the Johns Hopkins University designed a robot that performs soft-tissue surgery better than humans.

The Smart Tissue Autonomous Robot completed a surgery to join two ends of  an intestine in a pig. This is a difficult procedure that requires a high level of accuracy and repetitive motions.

The robot performed the procedure in four animals and produced significantly better results than humans performing the same procedure. The findings show that we can automate even the most intricate and delicate tasks in surgery with minimal human intervention.
