Surgical robot BOTCHES surgery, kills man on operating table while doctors sipped lattes

• https://www.naturalnews.com

(Natural News) In the name of scientific "progress," Newcastle's Freeman Hospital in the United Kingdom recently tried to pioneer the use of a surgical robot that it tasked with repairing a patient's damaged heart valve, only to have the machine go completely bonkers and ultimately kill the man on the operating table.

According to reports, this first-time-use robot not only physically assaulted a living medic while attempting to conduct its programmed surgery, but also implanted stitches into the patient's heart in a manner that physicians present during the fiasco described as not being in "an organised fashion."

A situation that can only be described as total chaos, with human surgeons, doctors, and nurses having to scream at each other in order to overcome the "tinny" sound coming from the robot as they were trying to control it, the attempted surgery ended up being nothing short of a complete failure. And in the end, retired music teacher and conductor, Stephen Pettitt, the guinea pig patient in this medical experiment, ultimately lost his life.

Lead surgeon admits that he was ill-prepared to operate the surgical robot, having skipped multiple training sessions

During a hearing that followed this catastrophe, lead surgeon Sukumaran Nair admitted that he lacked proper experience in controlling and using the surgical robot, stating that he was "running before he could walk." In other words, it was truly a case of medical negligence and malpractice on steroids.

As later revealed by the U.K.'s Daily Mail Online, Nair not only missed a critical training session in Paris that would have taught him how to properly use the surgical robot, but he also wasn't present for another training sessions that later took place at his own hospital, claiming that he was busy with another surgery at the time.

While supervisory experts were supposed to have been present for this surgery-gone-wrong, which should have prevented this type of nightmare from ever even occurring, they, too, were reportedly missing when things started to hit the fan.

According to Thasee Pillay, Nair's assisting surgeon, these overseeing proctors had apparently "gone to the coffee shop" right in the middle of the procedure, which prevented them from being able to take the reins once it became clear that Pettitt's life was at risk from the surgical robot going rogue. Pillay also stated that he had no idea that these overseers were planning on not staying throughout the entirety of the surgery.

"I had no idea of their timescale and that they were not staying for the duration," he's quoted as saying. "The proctors leaving was a crucial moment. The loss of that vital assistance was a major blow at a critical time."
