Robots and robotic surgery today
Nowadays, robots are massively performing extremely precise jobs or jobs that, for humans, would be heavy, dangerous, or repetitive. You can find them all over the world: in factories, warehouses, transport hubs, space stations, laboratories, army bases, and … hospitals.
In operating theaters, robotic surgery is becoming a common sight. It’s been a growing field in healthcare since the early days of the Arthrobot (1984), ROBODOC (1992), and ZEUS (1994) surgical systems. Having evolved from an experimental to a mature and proven technology, there is no doubt that robots are shaping the future of clinical interventions.
