A Chinese-developed robot has been put into use at a hospital in the central Chinese city of Hefei to help perform orthopaedic surgeries.
The machine, named Tianji, is said to be the only robot in the world that can perform surgeries on all different parts of the human spine.
Tianji debuted at the hospital in Hefei last week, conducting a 30-minute surgery for a 43-year-old patient who had been suffering from paralysis in his legs for more than a year.
Doctors scanned the patient and sent the results to Tianji’s operating system before the robot started performing its surgical tasks.
