Surgical robots in the spotlight at the Healthcare Robotics Engineering Forum

One of the most promising areas of healthcare and medical robotics is robot-assisted surgery. From greater precision in minimally invasive procedures to the application of artificial intelligence, augmented reality, and 5G networks, surgeons and patients can benefit from new developments. The Healthcare Robotics Engineering Forum, which will be at the Santa Clara Convention Center on Dec. 9-10, will include discussions about advances in surgical robots.

About the Healthcare Robotics Engineering Forum

The inaugural Healthcare Robotics Engineering Forum is designed to give robotics developers opportunities to learn from technology, business, and clinical experts and peers. The goal is to advance the development and manufacture of commercially successful healthcare products and services.

The conference is organized into four tracks, and the exposition floor will provide attendees with direct access to the latest robotics design and development tools.

The event will also include networking opportunities, and it is co-located with DeviceTalks West, which focuses on medical devices.
