First remote 5G breast cancer surgery in China a success

A 72-year-old woman who was the country’s first patient to receive a remotely controlled breast surgery via 5G technology is in recovery and will soon leave the hospital in the Pukou district of Nanjing, East China’s Jiangsu province.

The woman, surnamed Mao, had breast cancer and received medical treatment at the Pukou branch of the Jiangsu Provincial Hospital.

At 9am on July 3, doctors led by Jiang Ping prepared for the surgery while Tang Jinhai, an expert on breast cancer, stayed 20 kilometers away at hospital headquarters to direct the procedure.

With the help of 5G and mixed reality technologies, the signal transmission was smooth and stable during the operation, and Tang designed the surgical incision on a projection board and instructed the local doctors to operate.
