Robotic surgery is the use of robots in performing surgery.
Three major advances aided by surgical robots have been remote surgery, minimally invasive surgery, and unmanned surgery.
Major potential advantages of robotic surgery are precision and miniaturization.
Further advantages are articulation beyond normal manipulation and three-dimensional magnification.
Some surgical robots are autonomous, and they are not always under the control of a surgeon.
They are only sometimes used as tools to extend the surgical skills of a trained surgeon.
