Soon Robots will be conducting Caesarean Section Deliveries – Royal College of Surgeons

Controlled by healthcare assistants, Robots will soon be delivering babies by carrying out C-sections as well as other surgeries.

The predictions are based on the report by the 'Commission on the Future of Surgery' set up by the Royal College of Surgeons in 2017.

The use of robotics and recording people's DNA will bring a 'watershed moment' for medicine in the next 20 years as they make surgery safer.

Doctors will also be able to diagnose illnesses like cancer before they destroy organs and, as a result, operations will be smaller scale and less traumatic, an independent commission has predicted.

A report said medicine is 'on the cusp' of a digital breakthrough and new machines could be in NHS hospitals as soon as next year.

And using advanced robots controlled by technicians and surgeons will mean operations will be faster, less invasive and easier to recover from.

Even healthcare assistants – who do not need any formal qualifications to get a job – could one day be trained to perform c-sections with the robots.

Specialists and surgeons will remain in charge of operations but may not always need to be in the room.

Some applications of robots and DNA-based medicine are expected to happen sooner than others, with healthcare assistant-led C-sections possible within five years.
