A team of biomedical scientists and engineers from the University of Houston (UH) and physicians from The Methodist Hospital Research Institute (TMHRI) are collaborating to develop a platform for image-guided and robot-assisted surgeries on beating hearts that is minimally invasive.
Supported by a $1.4 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF), researchers in UH's Medical Robotics Laboratory (MRL) are creating a robotic system to one day be used in cardiothoracic surgeries that would not only automate, but also increase the precision of surgeries.
