Abstract

In this review, we are commenting the current status and the future of surgical robotic systems. AESOP is a voice-controlled laparoscope manipulator that enables the "Solo-surgery". ZEUS is a master-slave manipulator that is characterized by its simplicity and lightness. da Vinci is another master-slave manipulator that has more range of freedom, therefore a surgeon can perform the operation with fewer difficulties. The technological development of high-quality and real-time 3D simulation, minimization of scopes and power saving techniques made these surgical robots realized. Although many pending matters such as lack of safety guideline or lack of accuracy of sensor/monitor have been raised in current surgical robotics, the development of the technologies may promise to resolve such matters in the future.
