Comprehensive overview of the field of surgical robotics
Discusses specific surgical applications of robotics from a systems perspective
Covers specific engineering applications of surgical robotics
Applications of surgical robotics in selected disciplines of surgery including orthopedics, urology, cardiac surgery, neurosurgery, ophthalmology, pediatric surgery and general surgery
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 surgery
Surgical Robotics: Systems Applications and Visions is an ideal volume for researchers and engineers working in biomedical engineering.
