The surgical placement of Cochlear hearing implants behind the human ear requires a highly trained surgeon, and can result in facial nerve damage, meningitis, tinnitus, infections, cerebrospinal fluid leakage, and potentially more. A collaboration between the Swiss ARTORG Center of Biomedical Engineering Research and the Institute of Surgical Technologies and Biomechanics of the University of Bern has resulted in an image-guided surgical robot system that offers a minimally invasive and safer alternative.
