China has successfully tested the world’s first remote-surgery equipment using 5G mobile network technology. In the January 8 procedure, a doctor in the southeastern province of Fujian removed the liver of a laboratory test animal at a remote location, by controlling robotic surgical arms over a 5G connection.

The lag time lag was said to be only 0.1 seconds between the doctor’s control device and the robot in the surgical room. Researchers said the high-speed can reduce the risk of deadly medical mistakes, and raises hopes that 5G-enabled remote surgery will soon be reliable enough for use on human patients.
