Surgery Can Be Fun With Roving Robot

A Roving Robot is coming to Windward Mall from 4 to 8 p.m. Monday (April 9), bringing a hands-on dimension to modern surgical techniques.

Sponsored by The Queen’s Medical Center to showcase a variety of its surgical procedures, the robot offers a “video game-like” take of how its surgeons use robotic skills for minimally invasive operations, resulting in fewer complications and faster recovery times.

The exhibit also has a virtual surgery contest (robot test drives), a name-the-robot contest and talks with the real doctors and nurses who use the technology.

Robots aid in prostate and urological surgeries, hysterectomies, heart valve repair and bypass, weight-loss operations and surgeries involving lungs, gastrointestinal and esophageal tracts and more.
