A robot is about to start performing gynecological surgeries in a New York hospital. No, we’re not kidding.

The FDA approved Da Vinci’s technology way back in 2000, so this was, like, a long time coming.

If letting a robot near your body with a knife sounds terrifying, you’re not alone, but doctors say robotic surgeons will actually be safer and more accurate than human ones.

The machine, operated by a (human) doctor in another room, will make cuts far smaller than any human could. This will spare patients a lot of pain, Brown said. Hooray, technology!
