Dr Andre Ng (Consultant cardiologist and electrophysiologist, Glenfield Hospital) talks about how Glenfield Hospital was recently the first in the world to perform remote heart surgery using a robotic arm. The remote catheter manipulation system allows a doctor to carry out a common heart treatment procedure remotely. The system benefits patients by allowing the catheter to be removed with great precision and permitting the doctor performing the surgery, which involves the use of x-rays, to operate from a distance, unburdened by a heavy lead apron.
