Autonomous robotic surgery (ARS) refers to surgeries autonomously performed by smart robots, as well as surgeries conducted by human surgeons with the support of external autonomous machines. Robotic surgeries result in fewer and smaller incisions, which means the patient suffers less blood loss and has a lower risk of complications. Advances in the fields of AI, 5G, computer vision have factored into the technology’s evolution, as have pandemic-driven social-distancing mandates. Hindering this technology’s adoption are factors like high implementation costs, a lack of skilled human resources, and safety concerns.
