Surgeries in Mars?

Mars is a whopping 33.9 million miles away from Earth, when closest. In comparison, the International Space Agency (ISS) orbits just 248 miles above Earth.

For surgical emergencies on the ISS, the procedure is to stabilise the patient and transport them back to Earth, aided by telecommunication in real time.

This won’t work on Mars missions, where evacuation would take months or years, and there may be a latency in communications of over twenty minutes.
