IamA Surgeon Using Robotics to Remove Cancer AMA!
My short bio: I am a surgeon who uses the DaVinci surgical robot to remove colon and rectal cancer. I perform these operations 1-4 times a week, depending on any number of factors. I am happy to answer questions you have about surgery or robotics: - what does it take to be a surgeon in modern america? - what is surgery training like? - how does the robot cut out cancer? - whatever you'd like to know
My First AMA got closed temporarily due to actually performing one of these surgeres and not be immediately available to answer questions. Well, I'm back and sitting here for next several hours. Fire away!
