    Live Demo: 5G Robotic Surgery with the Sense of Touch

    Published on Jul 13, 2016

    IoT haptic healthcare applications, including remote robotic surgery, empower doctors with the sense of touch, complementing high definition video and audio connections to create an immersive environment. In this live demonstration, based on research collaboration between Ericsson and King’s College London, we experience the concept of a robotic finger able to detect hard tissue within a soft tissue sample. The demonstration leverages the 5G capabilities of very high throughput (current Ericsson 5G trials are hitting more than 25 Gbps), low latency and network slicing. 5G network slicing supports different flows of traffic – in this demo, for example, we have the close view camera, the wide angle view camera and tactile remote control -- and enables different quality of service parameters to be applied to each.

    Watch researchers hack a surgical robot

    Published on Jul 14, 2016

    In the future, your surgeon could be a machine. Teleoperated surgical robots can be controlled from a distance to operate on patients in hard-to-reach places. But as information travels between a human on one side of the world and a robot on the other, it’s vulnerable to attack.

    In the first episode of our series ‘Can I Hack It?’ Motherboard visits researchers at the University of Washington who are exploring how teleoperated surgical robots could be hacked—so they can spot vulnerabilities before human patients are at risk.

    We get hands on with the RAVEN II surgical robot and find out for ourselves how difficult it is to control when a hacker takes over. Could we be risking assassination by hacker?

    RI Seminar: Umamaheswar Duvvuri, MD : Surgical Robotics- past, present and future

    Streamed live on Sep 30, 2016
    Umamaheswar Duvvuri, MD
    Assistant Professor of Otolaryngology, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center

    September 30, 2016

    The advent of robotic systems to medicine has revolutionized the practice of surgery. Most recently, several novel robotic surgical systems have been developed are entering the operative theater. This lecture will describe the current state-of-the-art in the robotic surgery. We will also describe some of the newer systems that are currently in use. Finally, the future of robotic surgery will be described in the context of clinical development and ease of use in the operating theaters of the future.

    Speaker Biography
    Umamaheswar Duvvuri, MD, PhD, is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania obtaining his Medical Degree in 2000 and his PhD in Biophysics in 2002. He completed an internship in General Surgery in 2003 and residency training in Otolaryngology in 2007 at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. He completed fellowship training in Head and Neck Surgery in 2008 at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. He joined the University of Pittsburgh in August 2008 as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery Division and is also a staff physician in the VA Pittsburgh healthcare System. He serves as the Director of Robotic Surgery, Division of Head and Neck Surgery, at the University Of Pittsburgh School Of Medicine and is the current Director of the Center for Advanced Robotics Training (CART) at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. He directs the Cart Training Courses which provide technical and circumstantial resources to initiate and optimize robotic surgery programs. He has authored numerous research publications and book chapters and is an invited guest lecturer/speaker on the subject of robotic surgery both nationally and internationally. A Fulbright scholar, his research interests include minimally invasive endoscopic and robotic surgery of the head and neck, tumors of the thyroid and parathyroid glands and molecular oncology of head and neck cancer. He is a leader in his field and has proctored Transoral Robotic Surgery cases at numerous medical educational facilities throughout the United States and Europe. He directs a federally funded laboratory that studies the biology of head and neck cancer. He holds funding from the National Institute of Health, Department of Veterans Affairs and the “V” foundation.

    How augmented reality could change the future of surgery | Nadine Hachach-Haram

    Published on Jan 10, 2018

    If you're undergoing surgery, you want the best surgical team to collaborate on your case, no matter where they are. Surgeon and entrepreneur Nadine Hachach-Haram is developing a new system that helps surgeons operate together and train one another on new techniques -- from remote locations using low-cost augmented reality tools. Watch the system in action as she joins a surgeon in Minnesota performing a knee surgery, live on her laptop from the TED stage in New Orleans. As Hachach-Haram says: "Through simple, everyday devices that we take for granted, we can really do miraculous things." (This talk contains graphic images of surgery.)
