Honestly, we don’t really need to add anything more to the title of this post but let’s give it a shot.

Kings coach Darryl Sutter had to undergo double hernia surgery recently and did so via a controversial means using a robot as CBS in Los Angles shares.

What’s the controversial part of it? The fact that surgeons are using a robot, called the da Vinci robotic surgical system, to do intricate operations of course. Sutter says he’s thankful for the procedure.

“I’ll be in full activity back on the ice again,” Sutter said.

Go ahead and tell me you’re not picturing Sutter still-woozy from anesthetics thanking his doctor and robot with snappy one-liners.

Sutter could be back at the rink within a week of the operation. Modern medicine is amazing and will be terrifying once Skynet is self-aware.

Update: If you’re curious how precise the robots are, here’s video of one (thanks to Josh Gold-Smith) peeling a freakin’ grape.
