Technological advancements are constantly providing new tools and resources for professionals in every field. Among the advancements that are in the process of development and improvement is surgical robot technology. This is being featured predominantly in a new "Leading Edge" segment with Jimmy Johnson.

During a surgical procedure, it is important for a doctor to have a steady hand and work as efficiently as possible to reduce the number of risks that are faced. Surgical robot technology refers to technological advances that help doctors reduce risk by providing computer assisted procedures.

The robot handles specific functions that assist a doctor throughout the process of performing a surgery. Depending on the procedure and the robot, the amount of assistance that is obtained by a robot can vary. In some cases, robots are used to reduce the invasive nature of the treatment so that fewer risks and health concerns develop.

Jimmy Johnson will host a segment on the advancements in surgical robot technology with "Leading Edge." During the segment, you will learn about current uses of robots in the medical industry as well as future goals. You will also learn about the surgical procedures that currently use robots to help treat patients and ensure that the surgery goes as smoothly as possible.

"Leading Edge" is a public broadcast. It is not distributed through PBS. To learn more about upcoming segments and topics of discussion, visit the Leading Edge website at http://www.leadingedgeseries.com or email info(at)leadingedgeseries(dot)com.
