Nanosurgery journal article by Freitas

From the International Journal of Surgery, an editorial on Nanotechnology, nanomedicine and nanosurgery by Robert A. Freitas, Jr. It reviews Feynman’s vision, today’s microrobotic surgical devices, and projects advanced medical nanodevices:

“We envision biocompatible surgical nanorobots that can find and eliminate isolated cancerous cells, remove microvascular obstructions and recondition vascular endothelial cells, perform ‘noninvasive’ tissue and organ transplants, conduct molecular repairs on traumatized extracellular and intracellular structures, and even exchange new whole chromosomes for old ones inside individual living human cells.”
