In China, the first 5G operation on the remote control was performed with the help of a DBS implant (deep brain stimulation).

The Chinese General Hospital (PLAGH), with the help of China Mobile and Huawei 5G technology, performed this operation at a distance of 3,000 kilometers from the patient.

The operation was performed by the local chief doctor, Ling Zipei, who operated surgical instruments from the city of Sanya with the micron precision of a computer using a 5G network, while the patient was in Beijing all the time. He successfully implanted a DBS implant ("brain pacemaker") in the optimal target site. The whole operation lasted three hours, and the patient pointed out that he was feeling very well.

"The 5G network solved problems such as video lag and remote control delays, which was the case with the 4G network. 5G provided almost real-time operation, without giving the impression that the patient was 3,000 kilometers away. In the future, specialized and quality experts from superior hospitals will be able to perform remote-controlled operations, and will complete operations that were previously difficult to complete in local hospitals,” Zipei said, ChinaDaily reports.

It should be noted that this is not the first remote control operation to use the 5G network, and with the development of infrastructure, it is almost certain that it will not be the last 5G has a huge potential to improve and speed up many industries, thanks to the fact that 5G is not late and that the signal is stable and high quality, and when operations are performed every second and its part can be the most important.

This kind of technology allows many other technologies to become more accessible, when I talk about medicine, Microsoft Hololens should be mentioned. With the help of these glasses, the first so-called holographic operation.
