Robotic surgery, or robotassisted surgery, allows doctors to perform many types of complex procedures with more precision, flexibility, and control than is possible with conventional techniques.
The most widely used clinical robotic surgical system includes a camera arm and mechanical arms with surgical instruments attached to them. The surgeon controls the arms while seated at a computer console.
Surgical Robots were introduced in 1987, and the first surgery performed was a laparoscopic surgery.
Since then, numerous procedures have been performed laparoscopically as technology and the skills of the surgeons have developed. The greatest advantage of robotic surgery is that there are fewer complications, less pain, and quicker recovery and smaller scars.
