Sci-Fi Surgery


Sarah Pearson from the Hunterian Museum takes a tour of a new exhibit showing the latest medical robots.

They include the RP7, for virtual consultation, and Ares - a 15-part robot that self assembles inside the body, developed by Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna, Italy.

Colin Robertson, a robotic expert from Prosurgics, demonstrates Freehand, a robotic camera holder and Keith Errey explains the Digital Plaster.

Sci-Fi Surgery: Medical Robots' at the Hunterian Museum, Royal College of Surgeons, London, will run from 8 September to 23 December.
