The stuff of sci-fi

Along with his robot counterpart, Dr. Samadi has performed more than 2,000 of these procedures. 

Samadi says robotic surgery also comes with a long list of benefits. It's less invasive, with shorter recovery time, and there's a better chance to retain sexual function. 

Does he see a day when a patient goes into the operating room and there are no humans involved, only a purely autonomous robot? 

"No, no, no, we're not there yet," he said. "I think the future, you never know."
