Chinese Surgeon Performs 'World First' Remote Brain Surgery On A Parkinson's Patient Who Was 3,000km Away

A doctor has performed the first ever brain surgery over a 5G mobile network, according to Chinese media.

A patient with Parkinson's disease allegedly had an implant put in their brain by a doctor who was more than 1,800miles away (3,000km).

The doctor who did the operation said the new technology could make it easier for medics to operate on people who live in more remote areas and can't travel.
