Robotic surgery has come a long way since 1985 when the first robot was used to place a needle for a brain biopsy using CT guidance.
Today, more than 800 hospitals in the U.S. and Europe use the highly advanced da Vinci surgical system, and a host of other systems, to perform everything from hysterectomies to mitral valve repairs.
However, like any surgical procedure, there are risks involved, and a botched surgery can lead to serious life-long complications or even death. Because robotic surgical systems (RSS) are so new, doctors, hospitals, and even the FDA are still trying to assess those risks.
