Robot Removes Patient's Throat Cancer

LONDON, Ont. - A 72-year-old retired homebuilder from Sarnia, Ont., is the first Canadian to have throat cancer removed by a robot.

Gildard Legere said Monday he feels fine two months after the operation. The procedure eliminates the need for major throat and neck incisions, a feeding tube and protracted radiation or chemotherapy.
I think this is pretty fitting, as well as interesting.
