Scientists including one of Indian origin have developed a robotic drill that can complete a two-hour brain surgery procedure in just 2.5 minutes. The new computer-driven robotic drill has been developed at the University of Utah and can make a type of complex cranial surgery 50 times faster than standard procedures.

The robot produces fast, clean and safe cuts, reducing the time the wound is open and the patient anaesthetised, which also decreases the incidence of infection, human error, surgical cost.

The research was published in the journal Neurosurgical Focus. To read the complete research click here: http://thejns.org/doi/full/10.3171/2017.2.FOCUS16561
