Abstract

This paper concerns the use of “robotic” technologies and systems to significantly improve the ability of human clinicians to perform surgery and other interventional procedures. We discuss briefly several possible taxonomies and adopt one of them to structure a brief overview of the field, using the different roles that robotic systems can play as an organizing principal. Our discussion emphasizes the complementary capabilities of robots and hmnans, and includes short sections on “intern replacements", telesurgical systems, robotic navigational aids, precise positioning systems and precise path systems. We conclude with a few remarks on the essential collaboration between clinical end users and robotics tecbmology researchers that is crucial to future progress in this emerging field.
