This book discusses the effects of emerging technologies on surgeons and surgical practice. The book opens with an overview of disruptive technologies, and their economic, scientific, ethical and social implications. Next comes a section describing how the Internet, virtual reality and simulation technology will change training and education. A section on Robotics covers computer-guided surgery, robotics and endoluminal therapies. Innovations in surgical instruments, including MEMS and Nanotechnology are outlined, as well. Next, the book reviews tissue engineering and artificial organs, genetic engineering, stem cells, emerging transplantation technologies and the brain-machine interface. A concluding section discusses ways of adapting to future technologies.

From the Back Cover:

Tremendous acceleration and changes in scientific discovery and progress are presently occurring. These important emerging technologies that will affect the practicing surgeon within the next 10 to 20 years are illustrated in detail in this volume. Its purpose is not to review clinical experience of the common surgical practice of the past decade, but to outline and illustrate the future trends. International experts in this field demonstrate emerging procedures and significant advances.

Review:

From the reviews:

"...Many books about the technology and the future become outdated and even farcical in a short amount of time. Think about Cold War era predictions about colonizing the moon and mining on Mars at the turn of the millennium, or predictions of early computer experts that computers would be limited to government and a few large companies. The authors of this book combine future predictions with discussions about the process of change and education to make a powerful and enduring contribution to the field..." (T.D. Light, University of Iowa, Doody's, December 2007)

"Emerging Technologies in Surgery is a very enjoyable book, edited by 3 surgeons widely considered leaders in the field of emerging surgical technology. It is easy to read, logical, insightful, and clearly meant for practicing surgeons who do not have a background in advanced physics. Most of the contributors are eminent surgeons from around the world and are experts in new procedures or leaders in major technological advancements in their fields. The result is a balanced, practical, and clinically relevant reference for surgeons ... ." (Hasan B. Alam, Journal of the American Medical Association, October, 2009)
