An Overview of Robotic Surgery

Rachel Miller

Surgical techniques utilising robotic technology are referred to as robotic surgery. The purpose of robotically assisted surgery was to increase the capabilities of clinicians performing open surgery by overcoming the limitations of existing minimally invasive surgical procedures. In robotically assisted minimally invasive surgery, the surgeon uses one of two approaches to distribute the instruments instead of moving them directly. Two choices are to use a direct telemanipulator or computer control.
