Technology in healthcare

Heidegger issue with technology is he believed humans were not inclining their definitions. Regarding technology, we lacked the ability to capture the different essence it conveys. This aspect ties into technology in the healthcare and how controversial we believe it to be. More specifically, in the field of surgery there is a patient and the surgeon only. The trust and connection between the two are what allows for a smooth surgery. Now some fear with the introduction of robots having the capability to replace surgeons with skills has the idea changed completely. Will surgery’s still have the same respect in the sense that we go to a hospital for a human doctor to treat us. Heidegger has done a remarkable job reshaping how we view technology especially how it negatively affects our healthcare system today.
