The future of surgery

Ever considered what it might be like to be operated on by a robot?

Ever considered what it might be like to be operated on by a robot? Whilst potential benefits to patients are significant, questions are raised over how the systems are regulated and who should take responsibility should things go wrong. Join leading Imperial College researchers Richard Ashcroft, Sir Ara Darzi and Brian Davies as they take an in-depth look at some of the innovations we can expect to see in the operating theatre over the next decade.
