ABSTRACT
The incorporation of robots into surgical technology is a relatively recent development. The robot-assisted surgery is in its early years today, however indications for its use in surgery are rapidly expanding. New robotic surgical applications and techniques are being developed and reported everyday. With the increase in their use and incorporation of new technological advances into robotic systems in the future, there will be continued development of new surgical approaches with improved patient outcomes. This paper reviews the history and developments of the use of robots in urology, and emphasizes its current applications.
