Laboratory of Daniel H. Kim, M.D., and Dongsuk Shin, Ph.D, The Microsurgical Robotics Laboratory, focuses on developing next-generation robotic devices for microsurgical procedures that treat life-threatening endovascular conditions such as cerebral strokes, fetal malformations and brain abnormalities. These miniaturized devices navigate through small, narrow and branched blood vessels in the brain in order to reach sites deep in the body that are inaccessible via other existing surgical devices. Patients who live in isolated regions of the world where special surgical procedures are unavailable can be treated remotely with this microsurgical robotics technology.
