Meet Chinese doctor who is the first to perform a brain implant surgery for patients over 1,800miles away (3,000km) using the latest 5G network
As the world welcomes the revolution in the new millennium network which is set to transform the entire setting and speed of the world, a Chinese media has reported that a doctor has performed the first ever brain surgery over a 5G mobile network.
The doctor was successfully able to carry out the surgery on patients with Parkinson’s disease after he allegedly had an implant put in their brain from more than 1,800miles away (3,000km).
The doctor who did the operation said the new technology could make it easier for medics to operate on people who live in more remote areas and can’t travel.
Dr Ling Zhipei, a surgeon at the People’s Liberation Army General Hospital in Beijing, did the procedure while thousands of miles away using surgical robots he inserted a deep brain stimulation implant a device used to try and control the tremors Parkinson’s patients suffer into the patient’s brain.
Using the mobile internet, the doctor was able to move the machines to work as fast as if it was in real time as the procedure lasted for more than three hours. Although it wasn’t clear how Dr Ling controlled the machines.
Dr Ling was working in the city of Sanya on the island of Hainan, which is off the south coast of China, near Vietnam. Beijing, meanwhile, is in the north. Dr Ling said: ‘The 5G network has solved problems like video lag and remote control delay experienced under the 4G network, ensuring a nearly real-time operation. And you barely feel that the patient is 3,000 kilometers away
