OBJECT To enhance the surgeon's dexterity and maneuverability in the deep surgical field, the authors developed a master-slave microsurgical robotic system. This concept and the results of preliminary experiments are reported in this paper. METHODS The system has a master control unit, which conveys motion commands in six degrees of freedom (X, Y, and Z(More)
manipulator systems have been introduced in various surgical fields 4,10 not only to enhance the sur-geon's dexterity in less invasive surgical procedures, but also to increase the safety and accuracy of surgery. Using mechanical devices that can only be furnished by robotic systems, these systems also make possible tasks that previously were impossible.(More)
