Without human assistance or instruction, a ‘robotic surgeon’ completes four successful procedures.

BALTIMORE: A “robotic surgeon,” developed at Johns Hopkins University in the USA, has set a new surgical record by performing four successful surgeries for the first time in the world.

According to a study published in the journal Science Robotics, the robotic surgeon performed four abdominal operations on pigs as scientists hoped that these AI-powered “doctors” will soon be able to perform surgery on humans automatically.

The robotic arm consists of an entire system, consisting of 3D cameras, sensors, and special algorithms called the “Smart Tissue Autonomous Robot”

Hamed Saeedi, an assistant professor of computer science and mechanical engineering at Johns Hopkins University, and his colleagues created it in 2016. Star is now capable of performing complex processes totally autonomously, without the need for human interaction or instruction, after five years of continual improvement.

During surgery, the robotic arm can conduct a variety of tasks with elegance, including removing the skin from the required spot, cutting the relevant internal elements, and finally sealing the area after operation.

Al-Najma “has given significantly better results than human surgeons,” according to Dr. Hamid Saeedi.
