Minimally invasive surgery is becoming increasingly significant in pediatric medicine. The use of minimally invasive visualization tools, combined with computer enhanced robotics technology, provides the surgeon superior views and very precise access to the patients' internal anatomy. The results of this application of the technology to smaller patients are demonstrated in improvement in patient outcomes — less pain, trauma and stress both physically and emotionally for both children and parents.
Children's hospitals throughout the world are successfully integrating robotics into their surgical practice. Today, surgical robotic systems have helped surgeons perform complex pediatric general surgery and cardiothoracic operations.
