How does 5G benefit telemedicine?

5G is a sought-after technology in telemedicine because it has two properties that support remote surgery. The first is low latency, which shortens the communication time between a surgeon in one part of the world, and a patient in another. The second capability is network slicing, which allows network operators to customize networks for a single purpose or user, reducing the potential for interference and lag.
