Robotic Technologies (Past, Present and Future)

Brian S. Peters, Priscila R. Armijo, Dmitry Oleynikov

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Today’s surgeon has access to a growing quiver of robotic technology aimed at both increasingly specialized procedures and broad applications. The availability and array of options for robotic-assisted surgery has seen exponential growth in recent times. Systems incorporate tactile haptic feedback, stereoscopic visualization, high definition three-dimensional display, and multisensory inputs. Existing platforms are comprised of iterations bred from research and development efforts across millennia and seek to improve nearly every facet of the physician-patient interaction.
