Imagine how tiny magnetically-controlled robots can diagnose and treat diseases from within the body. We are not far away from swallowing our surgeons! Prof dr ir Sarthak Misra is leader of the Surgical Robotics Laboratory (UT) and develops techniques to reach challenging locations within the body. Dr Herman Roelink is a urologist at ZGT-hospital and operates on patients using robotic arms. Prof dr Maroeska Rovers, scientific director of the TechMed Centre and professor Medical Technology and Innovation (Radboud UMC), reflects on the future of robotics in hospitals.
