EAU 2017 | What do clinicians look for in a surgical robot?
Peter Albers, MD, from the Heinrich-Heine-University Düsseldorf, Germany, discusses which factors are important to consider in surgical robots at the European Association of Urology (EAU) conference 2017 in London, UK. He highlights the advantages presented by robot-assisted surgery and points out new imaging technologies which are only possible in laparoscopic or robot-assisted surgery. Prof. Albers argues that the future of surgery will be in a minimally invasive approach and that technical improvements are necessary to maximize the advantages of robotic surgery.
