Abstract

Currently, we live in a new era of minimally invasive surgery. Operations are more like video games than
traditional open surgeries. The old-fashioned expression that “a good surgery requires a large incision”
has been completely abandoned in countries where medical technology and research are well structured.
Within the modern minimally invasive surgeries over the last 30 years, laparoscopic surgery is the most
well established and recognized approach. However, with development of advanced technologies
and intense research, robotic surgery has emerged in the last decade as an attractive alternative to
laparoscopic surgery.
