The Inevitable Result of Robot Surgery

The Future Is Now!

 

I’ll say up front that I have no particular knowledge of the safety of robot assisted surgery, the long-term health effects, or its impact on the medical and patient community, other than the fact that the Wikipedia article on it has no less than four “issues” listed at the top of it and they’ve all been there since 2010.

What I do know, is that this actual commercial is one step away from an actual Saturday Night Live Sketch, and also that they really, really could have come up with a more serious url than one that implies swatting a roomba with a rolled up newspaper. (Also, I just checked, and badrobotsurgery.tumblr.com is totally available, people.)
