In traditional open surgeries the post-operative infections are common complications with reduced clinical outcome. The major limitations associated with traditional surgeries are large incisions, increased operating time, surgical marks, blood loss and higher recovery time. After the introduction of laparoscopic surgery, the minimally invasive approach has become important in many surgical fields due to its advantages over open surgery. The laparoscopic surgery has drawback that it is stressful for surgeons because of its ergonomic discomfort. The robotic surgical system provides improved technologies including superior 3D views, improved dexterity with an internal connected EndoWrist that truly mimics the movement of surgeons hand, minimize tremor and ergonomic which make them superior to conventional laparoscopy. Thus it can facilitate technically demanding operations and maximize the comfort of surgeons. Robotic surgery has been rapidly adopted in many fields of surgery. The robotic assisted surgery is improving patient outcomes through improved precision, stability and dexterity.
Keywords: Robotic surgery, laparoscopy, clinical outcomes, complication rate.
