Abstract

The first gynecologic procedure performed with a robot was a tubal anastomosis. This was performed in 1998 with the Zeus robot. Over the past several years other gynecologic procedures have been performed with other robots. Current robotic technology may not be universally applicable to many gynecologists' clinical practice. The field of surgical robotics is evolving at an ever increasing pace, however, and gynecologists need to participate in its development.
