For the first time, an endoscopic medical device fitted with a femtosecond laser "scalpel" enabling surgeons to spare healthy cells by only removing unwanted tissue has been developed by a research team from the University of Texas at Austin. "This device has a lot of unique properties and will create the next generation of surgical tools," the project's principal investigator, Dr. Adela Ben-Yakar, told DOTmed News. "This will allow doctors to carry out treatments that were not possible before and may even improve current ones."
