Recent Research Advances
Miniature, minimally invasive surgical robots are operated by a surgeon at a video game-like console.  Our robotic technology allows clinical diagnosis and treatment to occur on the battlefield, in space, or in another location where patient and surgeon are separated by distance or under time constraints.  Our robots will reduce surgical invasiveness, decrease hospitalization time, and enhance overall health and quality of life.
