Abstract

The da Vinci surgical system is now widely adopted in hospitals and research centers worldwide, with more than half a million clinical cases [1]. However, minimally invasive microsurgical procedures such as the transsphenoidal pituitary tumor resection has yet to be contemplated with robotic aid. Such necessity inspired some groups to use the da Vinci system in head and neck surgery, but with limited success [2], due to its large size, thick tool diameter exceeding 5 mm, and lack of force feedback.
