Japan's first surgical robot was developed two years ago. As of 2022, it won approval for use in cancers of the prostate, stomach, colon and uterus. We examine how the robot is used in surgeries and interview the developers about why the device was necessary. We also look at how the robot is being used to operate remotely and to train novice doctors, thereby changing the future of surgery.
