Abstract

This focus piece looks at how Maine's hospitals have embraced surgical robots. The technology has been likened to video games because surgeons manipulate instruments using a control console rather than by hand. The process is less invasive than open surgery as the robotic instruments can fit through incisions of less than an inch. Article includes a list of which hospitals in Maine have acquired robots.
