A new robot at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin, the Neuromate, can help neurologists implant electrodes in a person's brain and then get a better understanding of brain activity during a seizure.
"It's designed to help surgeons precisely target deep lesions in the brain with great accuracy," Dr. Sean Lew explained.
Then, in a second surgery, doctors can remove the brain tissue that's causing seizures.
The Neuromate aims to help an increased number of patients and reduce their recovery time.
