Robot Surgeons: For Prostate Cancer and Gastric Bypass? - Robotic surgeons may seem like science fiction, but they are routinely helping human surgeons perform surgeries across the world, especially North America. Prostate cancer surgery is benefiting immensely from robotic surgeons, since the robots can be more precise in nerve-sparing, allowing men to retain important functions of elimination control and sexual performance that can easily be lost during such surgery performed by a human surgeon.

Robotic Surgery Update: Da Vinci Heart Surgery - Using the Da Vinci robotic surgeon system, surgeons should soon be able to operate on the heart without stopping the beating. Conventional heart surgery is done with the patient placed on cardiovascular bypass, with a machine pump circulating the blood, while the heart sits idle for the convenience of the surgeon and the safety of the patient. Now George Mylonas of Imperial College London has developed motion compensation software that should allow the robotic surgeon to compensate for the motion of the beating heart, and operate on the organ without stopping it first.

Tiny spinning screws used to ferry drugs or attack tumors - A team of micromachine experts have developed tiny spinning screws that could swim along veins, ferrying drugs to infected tissues, or even burrow into tumours to kill them off with a hot lance. Kazushi Ishiyama at Tohoku University in Japan has designed swimming micromachines based on cylindrical magnets.
