I recently had the opportunity to try out a surgical robot, a medical device that has excited doctors, patients and hospital marketing departments.

The experience felt right out of a Hollywood movie, as I was able to view the operating field with impeccable clarity using a sophisticated 3-D camera. As a primary care doctor who rarely uses medical devices, I was certainly impressed.
