It can overcome some of the limitations of the human hand and especially in minimally invasive surgery it's superior visualization and advanced articulation combined with superior tools, etc will completely dominate high end surgery in time.
Add in the eventual possibility that distant expert surgical specialists will be able to lend a hand in difficult circumstances remotely, plus the myriad possible non surgical, precision applications, plus the virtual monopoly in the field..and so on....
Then the odd recall is no big deal.
As in driving, most of the mistakes will continue to be operator error.
