In this episode, Professor Robert Winston looks at the new, cutting-edge surgical robots in use today. He questions how useful they are. We see a tiny baby undergoing a robotic operation and find out it could just as easily have the operation without the robot. We also see one of the earliest brain tumor operations. Space technology has made the extraordinary Canadian neuroArm robot possible, enabling the surgeon to see exactly what is going on inside the patient's brain without having to open the skull. Professor Winston begins his journey as a very cynical observer, but he has an open mind and is willing to be convinced.
