SUMMARY Surgical robotics is a growing discipline, continuously expanding with an influx of new ideas and research. However, it is important that the development of new devices take account of past mistakes and successes. A structured approach is necessary, as with proliferation of such research, there is a danger that these lessons will be obscured, resulting in the repetition of mistakes and wasted effort and energy. There are several research paths for surgical robotics, each with different… 
ROBOTIC SURGERY: A CRITICAL EVALUATION
TLDR
The scope of this review covers the fundamental concepts and approaches utilized in surgical robotics, and a detailed review of seven FDA approved and commercially available systems is presented in terms of the clinical procedure conducted by each robot along with the associated problems and needs.
State-based Safety of Component-based Medical and Surgical Robot Systems
TLDR
This dissertation presents the concept, model and architecture to reformulate safety as a visible, reusable, and verifiable property, rather than an embedded, hard- to-reuse, and hard-to-test property that is tightly coupled with the system.
Theory and method to enhance computer-integrated surgical systems
TLDR
The goal of the research was to develop new methods and algorithms to support image-guided systems, increase their accuracy and safety with intra-operative tracking, error reduction and advanced control, and develop a framework for robotic telesurgical support of human space missions and for other long distance procedures.
A research review on clinical needs, technical requirements, and normativity in the design of surgical robots
TLDR
The clinical needs and the technical requirements that will trace the roadmap for the next scientific and technological advances in the field of robotic surgery, the metrics that should be defined for safe technology development and the standards that are being elaborated for boosting the industry and facilitating systems integration are explored.
Safety Design View: A conceptual framework for systematic understanding of safety features of medical robot systems
TLDR
The Safety Design View is proposed, a conceptual framework that can capture and describe both the design-time and run-time characteristics of safety features of medical robot systems in a systematic and structured manner.
From concept to market: Surgical robot development
Surgical robotics and supporting technologies have really become a prime example of modern applied information technology infiltrating our everyday lives. The development of these systems spans

TLDR
Robotically assisted surgery was developed to overcome the pre existing limitations of Minimal Access Surgery i.e. 2D vision, dexterity, tremors, freedom and rotation of movements, surgical précising and accuracy and to enhance the capabilities of surgeons performing open surgery.
Image-based robotic system for enhanced minimally invasive intra-articular fracture surgeries
TLDR
A new design of the robot-assisted fracture surgery (RAFS) system developed at Bristol Robotics Laboratory is presented, featuring a new robotic architecture, and real-time 3D imaging of the fractured anatomy, improving the state-of-the-art in robot assistance in orthopedics.
Robot-assisted microsurgical forceps with haptic feedback for transoral laser microsurgery
TLDR
Improved system precision, usability, and ergonomics point to the potential suitability of the device for the OR and its ability to advance haptic-feedback-enhanced transoral laser microsurgeries.
5G Robotic Telesurgery: Remote Transoral Laser Microsurgeries on a Cadaver
TLDR
Surgeons successfully performed complex transoral laser microsurgeries on the vocal cords of an adult human cadaver located 15 km away from them thanks to a high bandwidth and ultra-low latency 5G telecommunication system.
