Surgeons and medical engineers have been trying to create machines that can assist in surgery, increase a surgeon's dexterity and support hospital staff. These aren't humanoid robots but computer controlled systems that have been optimized for use in sensitive situations. An exhibition called Sci-fi Surgery: Medical Robots, opening this week at the Hunterian Museum of the Royal College of Surgeons of England, shows a range of robots used in medicine.
