Technology has changed almost all aspects of our life. Similarly, in the medical field, the new technology is Robotic surgery. Robotic surgery involves employing robots in the process of surgery. The employed robot, known generally as the surgical robot, is self-regulating, partially or entirely computer-controlled, and can be programmed as required for the surgery. As different surgical robots are employed for different types of surgery, robotic surgery improves patient care and ensures better treatment than regular surgery. The purpose of this article is to provide an outline of the main ideas of robotic applications used in surgery. This article aims to provide an overview of robotics's current and future applications in surgical operations and the advantages and disadvantages of surgical robots.
