Robots have recently started to be used to perform very difficult cochlear implant surgery. This surgery is used to regain hearing in people that have no hearing. It bypasses the damaged parts of the ear and transmits sounds directly to the nerves. While a human performs most of the surgery, a robot, the most accurate out there, completes a drilling in a very delicate spot. While this surgery is in its earliest stages, it shows promise for future robot assisted surgeries in the medical profession.
- Robotics have become so incredibly advanced that they can assist with the most serious of surgeries.
- One particular area that robotics excel in are ear surgeries designed to bring hearing back to those who do not have it.
- Surgeries that have a robotic component that are designed to fix hearing issues require serious planning to execute.
“For the first time, robots have successfully performed a tricky, delicate operation that helped implant a hearing device into a deaf woman’s ear, according to a new study.”
