After writing my week four future predictions for robotic surgery, it was interesting when I went searching for news and articles regarding the topic. This first link looks at how small robotic arms are being used for spinal surgery in the United States, Germany, Russia South Korea and a broad range of other countries around the world. They claim that the use of robotic arms in this delicate procedure reduces the amount of pain felt by patients as well as reducing the recovery time. Overall, the experience and outcomes of surgery are improved thanks to this advancement in technology and its application to society and in particular, the area of health and science. It was also interesting to note that the article compares the surgeons use of robotic limbs to perform surgery to playing a game. The entire process of learning and using tools as well as strategic thinking shows and links in with the idea that gaming in the social and in this case healthcare aspect can be appropriated (social technological change and development of health care).
