Robotic Surgery

Robotic surgery is a recent modification to laparoscopic surgery. In this technique, a robot holds instruments similar to those used in laparoscopic surgery, modified to increase precision and dexterity. The surgeon then controls the robot from a console next to the operating bed. This helps overcome some of the technical challenges with laparoscopy, and has the potential to increase the range of surgery and number of patients suitable for minimally invasive operations.
