Robotic Virtual Surgery with KUKA Bots

There are already plenty of robots that are used to help surgeons perform minimally invasive surgery operations. This video from KUKA Robot Group shows how the KUKA LBR iiwa robot arm, which has force torque sensors on each of its seven axes can be used for remote operations with haptic feedback.

You can use the robot as a teleoperation device with human-like touch sensitivity. Real-time visual feedback is offered in virtual reality, so the entire operating room can be simulated for remote surgery.
