TED Talks: Surgery's past, present and robotic future

"Surgeon and inventor Catherine Mohr tours the history of surgery (and its pre-painkiller, pre-antiseptic past), then demos some of the newest tools for surgery through tiny incisions, performed using nimble robot hands. Fascinating -- but not for the squeamish."

  1. Catherine Mohr is listed as a surgeon both here and at the Stanford website. But there is no listing of her name with the California Medical Board as being a licensed physician in that state. She's only mentioned as being a medical student in 2005. Has anyone tried to find her medical biography? I couldn't find anything definitive.

    Also, as a layperson, I didn't find anything "squeamish" about the video.
