Hi PaulIn my understanding, robots will replace surgeons in the next few decades.Currently, there are robotic devices involved of surgery, but they are remotely controlled by a surgeon. This gives great precision in a wide range of operations but still does not eliminate the human element.It might take a very long time, but I reckon eventually robots will be doing autonomous surgery, and we will finally have the human factor eliminated, making surgery safer.
I suspect that robots won't completely replace the human element in surgery. Unless they are designed to think independently, learn, act and respond to emergency situations or are programmed to respond to the multitudes of scenarios that exists simply by performing surgery.
