Robot Surgery on Preborn Babies

Bradley Mattes   |   September 17, 2014

Three years ago a heart surgeon reconstructed my heart valve using a robot while sitting at a console several feet away. This minimally invasive procedure dramatically improved the recovery process. Now doctors are working to develop a tiny robot arm that will perform a similar surgery on unborn babies with spina bifida. It’s when the spinal cord doesn’t fully close on the baby’s back and can result in paralysis or even death. The tiny devise would have a three-dimensional camera, as well as a tool to perform the necessary tasks to close the opening over the spinal cord. All of this would ideally be done in the sixteenth week of pregnancy. It’s possible that this new tool could also be used to deal with other health issues in the womb. Join me in praying for their speedy success.
