Robotic Arm Assisted Surgery

Check out this incredible piece of technology! The Stryker Mako, Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery! Primarily being deployed in orthopaedic arthroplasty. The Mako allows improved precision and reproducibility in the all-important osteotomies performed during joint replacement surgery, ensuring optimal biomechanics and prosthetic fit.
Although we are likely to see improved patient outcomes with the application of such technology, from a personal perspective, is the application of such technologies such as the Mako, DaVinci, or gamma knife appealing?
Does it remove some of the art, skill and joy of the operating surgeon? Or are you someone who embraces the inevitable move toward autonomously performed robotic surgery?
