The Instagram accountKaisLeSurgeon‘ shared a video in which he shows himself as the 5G allows the use of the scalpel remote operate. Similarly, it was demonstrated in May last year in a remote control test of a banana that was in California (USA) from the surgeon’s computer in London (United Kingdom), i.e. 8,558 km.
The discovery was an attempt to telemedecine and served to demonstrate the possibilities of remote surgery. The video of the operation was shared by the tech expert Pascal Bornet who tweeted:
“The achievements of telemedecine: a London surgeon remotely operated on a banana in California. This is only a demonstration of the possibilities of remote surgery; through communication 5Gthat operates with minimal delays, these operations will become a reality for surgeons & rdquor ;, explained the expert.
This remote #surgery was made by a London surgeon on a banana in California, using #5G. Amazing potential!

The journalist also echoed the news Charles Carter, specialist in medical robotics, who affirms that telesurgery is possible thanks to the speed of the signal offered by the 5G:
“With a latency from start to finish quite low: the time it takesreport of London, when the surgeon moves his controllerto reach the robot in California and the answer visual and haptic which will be sent back to London, it is possible to control the surgical robot successfully (i.e. without turning the banana into minced meat), ”explains Carter.
It is certainly a step forward that in the future could provide top notch medical care in remote areas That is neglected. On the other hand, more than 10 years is what it usually takes for anyone to be able to practice as a surgeon. Thanks to this knowledge and to a technique that sometimes exceeds human limits, medical milestones have been reached such as the transplant of a heartadapt some robotic legs to the body or even graft a brain.
In short, progress can mean another important discovery be able to perform special operations on people who need a surgical intervention in an unpopulated area or the possibility that a specialist surgeon can operate remotely thousands of kilometers to his patient.
