You're not even a medical student.
Have you ever sutured anything? (I hope not a patient, but you could have tried pigs' feet or orange peels.)
I'm not going into a surgical specialty, but I've sutured plenty of wounds/incisions and honored my surgery rotation.
Suturing would be difficult to automate, but far from impossible. The hardest part would be wound approximation. (And obviously the needles would be different.)
