RoboDoc and a hospital revolution

ROBOTS are helping surgeons do quicker and less intrusive operations.

I’d like you to meet my doctor. His name is Vinnie and he’s pretty good at what he does. Just a little while ago he removed my prostate gland. It was cancerous, and it would eventually have killed me. Vinnie is so good at what he does that just hours after this normally major abdominal operation I was eating, talking, walking and generally happy. And Vinnie won’t accept a dollar in reward for his remarkable achievements, performing this feat endlessly and without complaint at the Royal Adelaide Hospital.
