Abstract

Computer-enhanced robotic surgery has now been introduced into general surgical practice. The robotic system enables us to manipulate endoscopic instruments, as well as instruments during open surgical intervention, regarding both the operative field and operation techniques. This technologic innovation should therefore help surgeons overcome various difficulties and allow them to perform more precise, safer, and more minimally invasive surgery in the coming era.
