    I'd be absolutely fine with a robotic surgeon. I'm assuming this thing would only be an option because it can perform the job well and was deemed safe by all agencies required to deem things safe. I imagine if something went wrong the results could potentially interesting. When a real surgeon messes up, it may be a slip of the hand or a forgotten procedure. A robotic surgeon could possibly attempt to perform the surgery rotated 90 degrees from where it should be. Heh.

    I'd rather have a robot... assuming tech advances to that stage. Right now surgery is mostly science, but still partly an art. So for the foreseeable future I'll take a human.

    A human for now, a robot in the distant future. I'm just skeptical that robots have sufficient enough artificial intelligence to successfully perform a surgery.

    I'd want the better option.
    Whoops.

    Uhh... I think I'd rather have a surgeon for now. I don't think robots are sophisticated enough yet to deal with complications and differences in people's bodies.

    Plus (thinking back to my recent surgery), it was comforting to have my surgeon there before they put me under. I think I might have had a panic attack if there hadn't been a group of people bustling around the OR.
