About this book

The purpose of this book is to define the basis of telemicrosurgery, a new discipline at the border of robotics and microsurgery. After the history of robotics and microsurgery, the robots and their instrumentation will be described. The chapters will explain the training in telemicrosurgery and then propose some experimental paradigms. The first clinical applications for various specialties will be explored. In closing, potential future applications will be discussed.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book provides valuable insight into the potential, limitations, and future applications of this technology. … this book focuses solely on the microsurgery aspect, making it ideal for microsurgeons and supermicrosurgeons -- both experienced and inexperienced. … This book is the first to address telemicrosurgery, and it provides valuable insights while sharing the experiences of some of the pioneers in this field and their take on the future of this technology.” (Anas Eid, Doody’s Book Reviews, May, 2013)
