Robot-Assisted Surgery
Bookmark and Share
Robots in the operating room aren't something out of science fiction ... they're a reality. Surgeons are using robots to assist them in a growing number of surgeries ... including heart valve repair and hysterectomy. On the next Mayo Clinic Radio, cardiac surgeon Dr. Joseph Dearani explains how robots are helping to make operations less invasive, leading to shorter recovery times. Also on the program, endocrinologist Dr. Robert Wermers discusses how diet, weight-bearing exercise and medications are used to slow the effects of osteoporosis. And hearing and speech specialist Dr. Douglas Sladen talks about a new drug being tested that may help slow or stop age-related hearing loss
