Darryl Sutter And His Double Hernia Surgery

from CBSLA,

L.A. Kings coach Darryl Sutter is touting a controversial surgical robot with helping him to get back in the rink less than a week after undergoing double hernia surgery.

Sutter, who had been struggling to keep up during the Kings’ 2013 season, has been given the all-clear for training.

He credits his speedy and successful recovery to the da Vinci robotic surgical system, a minimally invasive device made by Intuitive Surgical. The company says it can perform procedures ranging from treatments for prostate cancer to hysterectomies – all remotely controlled by a surgeon.

“I’ll be in full activity back on the ice again,” Sutter said.

Controversial robot? Not that I’m aware of. It’s used quite a bit. Someone with minimal knowledge wrote that article.
