AN OVERVIEW ON THE TRENDS, FEATURES AND APPLICATIONS OF ROBOTIC SURGERYAbstract
In the era of recent technology, robotic surgery will be the ruler of the medical world with its attributes, its journey from a mere idea to today’s world’s surgical epitome. Using the methods of telerobotic visualization and controlling systems, this technology works towards improvement in all the fields of medicine and patient care. Robotic surgery dwells on the functionality of the most widely known models of Da Vinci and Zeus. It has benefited the patients by combining with minimally invasive, transoral, and laparoscopic techniques working better in synergism. It has been to date employed in the surgeries in the fields of the eyes, cranium, bone, thyroid, heart, liver, obesity, gastrointestinal, obstetrics as well as carcinomas. Its future potential is bright based on the types of technologies that are being linked with normal robotic surgery. One such endeavour is the microbot, which makes reaching the smallest nooks and corners of the internal physiology of the human body possible as well as more efficient.
