The future of surgery is here and is happening at the Mayo Clinic as it debuts new virtual operating rooms.  They have cutting edge technology that they hope will mean better treatment for patients.  "As we launch this, I feel like we're at the Kennedy Space Center with a mission to Mars about to be launched," comments Dr. Bernard Bendok.  This is a dream five years in the making for Dr. Bendok.  He says they wanted to "bring the best of radiology technology together with the best of surgical technology into a new type of space designed to facilitate minimally invasive and image-guided surgery."
