Dutch firm looks to take robotic surgery to next level

Robotic surgery and robotically-assisted surgery have become increasingly widespread in recent years. At the cutting edge of this technology is Eindhoven Medical Robotics, an Eindhoven University of Technology related start-up. Among their latest designs is a steerable catheter, co-developed by robot system architect Rolf Gaasbeek. Gaasbeek says open-heart catheter operations are extremely difficult, requiring long recovery times. Gaasbeek says his robot catheter will not only improve the health of patients, but potentially that of the medical staff also. Colleague Jordan Bos hopes RoboSculpt, a skull drilling robot of his design, could perform its first surgery within five years.
