abstract

  • Advances in technology have revolutionized urology. Minimally invasive tools now form the core of the urologist's armamentarium. Laparoscopic surgery has become the favored approach for treating many complicated urologic ailments. Surgical robots represent the next evolutionary step in the fruitful man-machine partnership. The introduction of robotic technology in urology changes how urologists learn, teach, plan, and operate. As technology evolves, robots not only will improve performance in minimally invasive procedures, but also enhance other procedures or enable new kinds of operations.
