“Robots, Surgery and Society”
Robots have long been used in our daily lives, from helping with chores to fighting wars. In hospitals today, they walk on doctor rounds visiting patients and perform surgeries. Maja will provide an overview of current innovations in surgery and robotics, and explore how the future of robotics will have awesome implications for surgery and society. She will ask how far can we go before a surgeon’s ally becomes his achilles heal? And what is the trade off between robotic innovation and doing no harm?
Maja is a liver transplant surgeon, currently training in Toronto. She has performed numerous operations both with and without the assistance of laparoscopic instruments, robotic devices, and highly technical imaging tools and holds a Masters in Public Health and training in Clinical Ethics.
