Modern technology has changed our daily lives in many ways such as communication, transportation, and especially in terms of medication. Such medical technologies include robotic surgery. Robotic surgery, considered as new technology as the first one, PUMA 560, was first introduced in 1985 for stereotaxic operation- inserting a needle into the brain for biopsy. Robotic surgery helped surgeons to perform complex tasks and subjects to minimize trauma errors that might occur due to imprecision. The implications of robots are still in the early stages and there are many concerns with the use of robots in the medical field, especially in surgery. Such problems are but are not limited to safety, ethics and morals, and its ability compared to humans. In this paper, we will begin with the history and general use of robot both in daily life and the medical field and we will explore laparoscopic surgery before we deeply elaborate on the use of robots, Da Vinci (the first robotic surgery approved by the Food and Drug Administration for laparoscopic surgery). Then we will illustrate the highlighted case performed by robotic surgery and compare between robots. Last but not least, we will analyze whether robots might replace surgeons in the future and how they might impact us both positively and negatively.
