It seems te me an interesting idea to tink about...

I guess the waldos you talk about would be more or less a high tech version of the robotic surgery used today (e.g. DaVinci robots).

I see the advantages you say, but I'm afraid it would have some problems too, not the least of them would be the possibility of not detecting problems (as bleeding could be) due to the same cryogenics you use.

Another disadvantage would be (IMO) the impossibility (or at least extreme dificulty) to convert what was planned as 'laparoscopic' surgery into open one should worst go to worst.

That does not mean I don't see advantages, but you have already pointed most of them. I have to think more about it...

I'm not afraid about bullets, what scares me is the speed at which they're incoming.
