abstract

  • The increasing popularity of robot-assisted radical prostatectomy has put the field of robotics in the spotlight. However, the relationship between medical robotics and the field of urology is older than most urologists know and it will most likely have a bright future beyond any contemporary application. The objective of this review is to provide an insight into the fundamentals of medical robotics and to highlight the history, the present and the future of urological robotic systems with an emphasis on robotic prostate interventions.
