Robots and human surgeons collaborate on the world’s first bladder transplant

The first bladder transplant in the world will be performed both by human and robotic surgeons

First time in history, doctors are using robots to perform a bladder transplant from a dead person onto a living patient.

A team of urologists from Keck Medicine of University of South California is currently conducting a trial which will lead to the first bladder transplant surgery in humans. Currently, the doctors are selecting participants for their trial.

Millions of people with bladder disorders around the world would be helped if such an operation was successful.
