Nowadays robotics are used in all surgical fields. By increasing the intra-abdominal articulation while operating through a small incision, robotics are increasingly used for a large number of visceral and solid organ operations, including surgery on the gallbladder, esophagus, stomach, intestines, colon, and rectum, as well as for the endocrine organs. As a specialty, robotics should continue to grow. The robotic era enables general surgeons perform more and more complex procedures through small incisions. As technology catches up with our imagination, robotic instruments and 3-D monitoring will become a routine practice and continue to improve the patient care by providing surgeons with most precise, least traumatic ways of treating surgical diseases.
Key Words: Robotic Surgery, Tele-Presence Surgery, Da Vinci Surgical System
