I think I would be very nervous having this procedure done by a Robot (from Yonhap).

A team of South Korean doctors has successfully completed heart-valve surgery on a female patient using a robot arm for the first time in the country, a Seoul hospital said Tuesday.

The team led by Jang Byung-cheol, a cardiovascular professor at Yonsei University’s Severance Hospital, conducted the operation Thursday on the 37-year-old woman suffering from valvular heart disease, according to the hospital.
