abstract

  • The effective integration of robotic technology and surgical tools has played a vital role in advancing surgical care by enabling telepresence in surgery to provide mentorship and surgical care across long distances in the absence of surgeons. This article describes our experiences with advancing surgical education and innovation through telementoring community surgeons, establishing the world's first telerobotic surgical service, and the integration of Artificial Intelligence and robotics to provide remote surgical care and training.
