  author={Jaydev P. Desai},
The evolution of robotics in surgery is a new and exciting development. Surgical robotics brings together many disparate areas of research such as: design, development and modeling of robotic systems, nonlinear control, safety in medical robotics, ergonomics in minimally invasive procedures, and last but not the least, surgery. Over the past decade there have been significant advances in basic research and technology that have made it possible for the development of robots for surgery. One of…
