Brain surgery was performed on a 5G network over 3,000 km
5G technology will be able to provide remote-controlled surgery without the need for future doctors.
Two years ago, a Chinese doctor performed a remote operation using 5G technology.
According to the China Daily, the doctor operated on a patient with Parkinson’s disease from a distance.
The procedure was performed in 2019 and similar surgeries have been performed since then.
The operation was first performed at PLA General Hospital (PLAGH) in China with the help of China Mobile and Chinese mobile phone giant Huawei.
Ling Zhipei, a senior doctor at the hospital, implanted a small brain deep stimulation (DBS) device in the back of the patient’s head to control Parkinson’s disease.
He was taken to Hainan Hospital, about 3,000 kilometers from PLAGH Hospital in Beijing, where he underwent surgery three hours later.
The exact nature of the operation is not known, but it appears that the operation was performed using networked devices.
The treatment was successful and after the operation, the patient said, “I feel better.”
5G technology can solve this problem by delaying the transmission of video, which is slightly slower than 4G communication technology, and provides real-time visibility.
The role of 5G technology is becoming increasingly important as the Internet of Things (IOT) uses IP systems to automate home appliances using devices such as automation and other mobile phones.
This technology is a significant improvement, especially in medical surgeries that can be performed precisely in less than a second.
Later, automated robots could even be used by medical staff in hospitals.
They include the condition of patients in hospitals; There is potential for even the ability to perform tasks, including documenting and operating procedures.
During the epidemic, these robots will reduce the rate of infection more than human medical personnel and keep doctors and nurses safe.
While there are still some benefits, it is not yet clear what the disadvantages will be due to the high frequency of 5G.
Recent reports have suggested that waves from the 5G network could be a major nuisance for airlines.
Regardless of the practical application, it is true that mobile networks need to be thoroughly researched to the extent possible to minimize the dangers to humans.
