The Royal Society

Surgeon for a day

Posted by on 19 July 2011

Ever wished you could leave the office and try someone else’s job for a day? Well at the Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition a team from King’s College London brought down their equipment to show you what it’s like to be a surgeon. Their exhibit Satnav for surgeons: navigating the body’s arterial highways uses robotic systems to help you navigate through an artery. You can perform operations with a catheter and use the same techniques that doctors are using in our hospitals today. Dr Graeme Penney shows you how in this video.
