Written by an international group of pioneering leaders in robotic and telerobotic surgery, this state-of-the-art volume examines the feasibility, uses, capabilities, and limitations of this emerging technology in surgical practice and training. Chapters discuss current electronic systems for guiding laparoscopic surgery and describe the various surgical robots and telerobotic surgical systems available. Major sections review recent experience with AESOP, a voice-controlled robotic camera holder, in laparoscopic procedures and explore various telerobotic-assisted procedures in cardiothoracic, gastrointestinal, and urologic surgery. Other chapters discuss cost issues in clinical use of telerobots, credentialing for telerobotic surgery, and use of telementoring in surgical training.
