Sitting 32km away, surgeon mends woman’s heart
Senior cardiologist Dr Tejas Patel performed an angioplasty on a middle-aged woman, who was in the operating theatre of his Apex Hospital, some 32km away, through the world’s first in-human telerobotic coronary intervention. A team of doctors and paramedics were attending to the patient in the OT, to take care of any eventualities.
