Surgical robotics is a rapidly evolving field. With roots in academic research, surgical robotic systems are now clinically used across a wide spectrum of surgical procedures. Surgical Robotics: Systems Applications and Visions provides a comprehensive view of the field both from the research and clinical perspectives. This volume takes a look at surgical robotics from four different perspectives, addressing vision, systems, engineering development and clinical applications of these technologies. The book also:-Discusses specific surgical applications of robotics that have already been deployed in operating rooms-Covers specific engineering breakthroughs that have occurred in surgical robotics-Details surgical robotic applications in specific disciplines of surgery including orthopedics, urology, cardiac surgery, neurosurgery, ophthalmology, pediatric surgery and general surgerySurgical Robotics: Systems Applications and Visions is an ideal volume for researchers and engineers working in biomedical engineering.
