I wish I had a Robot!
Wow, is all I can say about this unique clip. I’ve seen these beasts in action on the operating table and to put it into practice tying flies is just amazing. But think about it, this should be part of the training for all surgeons to be able to get a feel for the robot. Just check out the half hitch technique at the end there. I’m also amazed that they didn’t pick an easy fly. I suppose surgery isn’t all that easy, so a complex fly is a good subject. May I suggest a Rangeley Streamer for the next video?
Dr. Szlyk demonstrates the precision and dexterity of the daVinci Surgical Robot by tying a delicate fly fishing lure small enough to fit on the head of a dime!
