Medical Nanobots are tiny robots being used for medical purposes. With their implimentation, medical science would be revolutionized, and millions of people would be saved every day.
Due to the great implications that nanobots have on the future of medicine, it is clear that focused research on this new field should definitely continue in order to effectively solve some of the obstacles that have been encountered today. By increasing our knowledge in the field of nanorobotics, we will be able to advance the medical science by many folds. This will lead to greater lifespans because there will not be any diseases that will be incurable; terminal diseases and damages today will be fixed with the addition of a couple billion nanobots through a simple syringe. Truly, the implications of nanobots in the medical field are infinite, and we are finding new possibilities every day. The speed at which science, especially nanorobotics, is advancing is really amazing, and based on this speed, nanobot applications in the body will be real in a mere twenty to thirty years. Someday, a man will walk into a hospital with third-degree brain cancer or diabetes, and within a few week, he will walk out with a healthy body and life.
