Telesurgical Unit

A telesurgical unit is a still mostly theoretical hospital surgical unit that is equipped for telesurgery – surgery on a patient without the operating surgeon being physically present. A few examples do exist, but for the most part, they are still restricted to laproscopic operations only.

A telesurgical unit essentially has two requirements:

1. An operating room equipped with the robotic equipment to carry out any and all surgical procedures, together with camera systems and sensing devices all manufactured to clinical standards, and a high-bandwidth, extremely low latency dedicated access line to a medical internet.

2. A surgical suite equipped with a wide ranging and intuitive to use mix of virtual reality and augmented reality interfaces to allow a surgeon to operate without worrying about how the interface works, instead free to concentrate on the patient.

This suite would have all the necessary interface equipment and display apparatus present as well as a high-bandwidth, extremely low latency dedicated access line to a medical internet.

The two sections would work independently. In a pinch, just the operating room would be installed, and all surgeries would take place via surgeons in other hospitals, anywhere on the globe.
