Robotic surgery also known as robot-assisted surgery is a type of minimally invasive surgery, which uses high technology computer system for surgical procedures. The robotic surgery is associated with high range of motion leading to high visibility resulting in low rate of per-operative complications and shorter hospital stay. Though it shows high success rate with low rate of complications but the cost of the robotic system and recurring cost is a challenge. The developing countries where basic health facilities are a challenge for government, installation of such high technology system may appear fancy without any great community benefit.
