    Robotics: Allowing surgeons to perform the seemingly impossible

    Medical robots are revolutionizing medicine. Their applications can facilitate superhuman dexterity, enabling the performance of surgical steps otherwise considered impossible and automating repetitive tasks. The benefits include high positional stability, precision, and accuracy along the x-, y-, and z-axes, removal of time constraints on subretinal and intraretinal drug delivery, and reduction of surgeon fatigue, according to Richard B. Rosen, MD, DSC(HON), of the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai in New York, New York.
