“Robotic surgery” originated as an imprecise term, but it has been widely used by both the medical and lay press and is now generally accepted by the medical community. The term refers to surgical technology that places a computer-assisted electromechanical device in the path between the surgeon and the patient. A more scientifically accurate term for current devices would be “remote telepresence manipulators” because available technology does not generally function without the explicit and… 
Manufacturing the Human Body - the Era of Surgical Robots
Robotic surgery is defined [1] as ‘A surgical procedure ortechnology that adds a computer-technology-enhanceddevice to the interaction between the surgeon and thepatient during a surgical operation,
The decisive role of the patient-side surgeon in robotic surgery
It is demonstrated that robotic surgery depends more on the patient-side assistant surgeon’s abilities than has been previously reported and interventions that have the benefit of a trained team are more rapid and secure.
Current status of robotics in general surgery
Recent studies show more indications for robotic approach of cholecystectomies, such as in the setting of a reoperative, hostile abdomen following gangrenous choelcystitis, or in completion choleCystectomy.
Use of Surgical Robots on Cardiology Surgery: Advantages and Barriers for its Implementation
The results of this study suggest that the benefits of advancement in technical features of robotic cardiac surgery outweigh the barriers.
Robotic surgery in gynecology.
The advancement of robotic surgery, in terms of the introduction of the Da Vinci Xi, permits the variable use of optical devices in all four trocars, and the second operation console and the operation simulator constitute a new dimension in advanced surgical training.
Robotic-Assisted Minimally Invasive Surgery in Children
There is evidence that robotic surgery in children is safe and it is important to offer its benefits, and recommendations for the implementation of a pediatric robotic surgery program are included.
Robotics in General Surgery: Update and Future Perspectives
SAGES defines robotic surgery as a surgical procedure that adds a computer technology enhancement interface to the interaction between the surgeon and his patient during a surgical operation and assumes some degree of control heretofore completely reserved for the surgeon.
Joint consensus on abdominal robotic surgery and anesthesia from a task force of the SIAARTI and SIC.
A joint task force of Italian surgeons, anesthesiologists and clinical epidemiologists reviewed the available evidence and provided expert opinion aimed at improving the implementation and resolution of issues derived from robotic abdominal surgery procedures.
Financial Considerations in Robotic Surgery
It is evident that robotic surgery has established itself as a standard of care for certain disease states, yet challenges still arise as the new healthcare environment balances both cost and quality.


Robotics in general surgery: personal experience in a large community hospital.
The preliminary experience at a large community hospital suggests that robotic surgery is feasible in a clinical setting, and its daily use is safe and easily managed, and it expands the applications of minimally invasive surgery.
Robotic surgery and cancer: the present state, problems and future vision.
It is believed that, in the near future, almost all kinds of endoscopic surgery will be performed by this technology, which will replace traditional surgery not only in the treatment of benign diseases but also in malignant illnesses.

Robotic Surgical Training in an Academic Institution
The authors have developed an effective curriculum for training teams in robotic surgery, and to implement a multispecialty robotic surgery training curriculum for both surgeons and surgical teams.
The da Vinci robotic system for general surgical applications: a critical interim appraisal.
Various general surgical procedures have proved feasible and safe when performed with the da Vinci robot, but robotic surgery does not at the moment represent a general alternative to conventional minimally invasive surgery.
Transoral robotic surgery (TORS): glottic microsurgery in a canine model.
Robotic renal and adrenal surgery: present and future
With laparoscopic nephrectomy becoming the standard of care for benign nonfunctioning kidneys, laparoscopically inexperienced surgeons will feel the need to offer this to their patients and may benefit from the more rapid learning afforded by the robot.
A performance study comparing manual and robotically assisted laparoscopic surgery using the da Vinci system
The da Vinci robotic system permits standardized minimal invasive surgical exercises to be performed quicker and more efficiently than traditional minimally invasive techniques, and indications for minimal invasive surgery may be expanded.
