The growing importance of Robotics in Medicine

The robotics business is emerging more swiftly than expected. The biggest trends, good and bad, shaping robotics right now and their expanding skills, moving up the corporate ladder, showing awesome productivity and retention rates. This importance is not only significant in the corporate industry rather it has placed a strong foothold in medical industry.

Mr. Roberto Casula, a famous cardiothoracic surgeon in UK perform coronary artery bypass grafting with the help of robots. It is a minimal non-invasive procedure and a great alternative to the conventional bypass surgeries. roberto casula

Robotics in Medical Industry

Although human medical workers might get replaced or grow frustrated if they experience that robots are able to do their jobs yet they are greater investment to health care organizations. The first medical robot was the PUMA 560, developed and introduced in the year 1985 for the purpose of placing a needle during a brain biopsy using CT guidance.

After it was successful and turned out to be more reliable, many robots have started to take on new applications within the medical industry. For instance, minimally invasive cardiac surgery has evolved through graded level through robotics. This is proved in reality by Mr. Roberto Casula. He has performed number of surgeries with the help of machines and created history in the field of cardiology.

Some of the top medical robots are

  • Disinfectant Robots– Made by Texas based Xenex, these robots have the ability to sanitize healthcare facilities far better than humans. They reduces 99.9% of bacteria and viruses most often prompting Hospital Acquired Infections.roberto casula
  • Robotic coronary artery bypass graft surgery– It was shown to be a safe and feasible method for performing this grafting procedure and was proven by Mr. Roberto Casula


The robots safely work alongside humans to boost their productivity and eliminate repetitive tasks.
