Book Description:
Minimally-invasive surgical techniques are rapidly becoming the desired standard, in keeping with our “first do no harm” mandate. The consensus of the contributing authors is that surgical robots represent the next level in our minimally-invasive evolution. These authors are pioneers in minimally-invasive techniques, and have discovered that surgical robotic systems can augment and extend our human capabilities as surgeons. They enable us to operate in increasingly smaller spaces, through increasingly smaller incisions, resulting in decreased morbidity and more rapid recovery times. Due to miniaturization and addition of the “wrist” to robotic endoscopic instruments, surgical robots have enabled procedures to be performed that are otherwise not possible with manually-controlled endoscopic instruments. This book brings together a review of how these surgeon-scientists have come to this early stage in robot-assisted surgery, how this technology is improving patient care in multiple surgical fields, and what we can expect in the near future from surgical robotics.
