Healthy Living: Robotic Snake
As many as 25,000 Americans are diagnosed every year with head and neck cancer.
Today in Healthy Living, we look at a revolutionary robotic snake, giving surgeons a minimally invasive way to perform delicate, life-saving procedures.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the flexible robot at the end of 2015.
So far, the advanced robotic system is only cleared for use in head and neck surgeries although doctors say it could be useful in cardiac cases, among other things.
