Abstract

Robotic surgery is becoming rapidly integrated in urology. Nearly every open or laparoscopic procedure has been described with robotic assistance. While the da Vinci robot is recently applied to the upper urinary tract, it has become widely adopted for performing radical prostatectomy. Benefits of robotics include 3-D vision, blood-less field from pneumoperitoneum, and ease of intracorporeal suturing. Disadvantages include cost, lack of haptic feedback, surgical learning curve and longer operative times. Here, the authors describe the state of the art applications and outcomes of robotics in urologic surgery.
