As per official media reports, doctors in China have successfully directed surgeons 200 km away to perform a gall bladder surgery using 5G network in a remote area.

The laparoscopic cholecystectomy was performed last week in north China’s Hubei Province which lasted about an hour. The surgery, where a 5G Internet connection enabled the entire process, was conducted in the Shennongjja forestry district branch of Taihe Hospital and was transmitted through live feed to an expert team in Taihe Hospital in the city of Shiyan.

A senior official with China Mobile’s Hubei branch said, “5G technology guarantees the clarity and continuity of transmitted videos and photos. With the network, more doctors can cooperate to conduct surgeries regardless of their distance.”

As per reports, China is implementing the 5G network to meet the public demand in sectors such as transportation, entertainment and health care.
