The aim of this paper is to review the background of robotic surgery, the existing technology associated with this field, the main robotic surgical procedures, the training methods, the financial aspect of using these systems and future prospects for robotic-assisted surgery. Given the fact that robotic surgery has a history of only 30 years, the surgical possibilities are not researched to their full extent. The most appreciated feature of the robotic system is considered to be the high mobility and wide array of movement allowing access to do surgery on tissues inaccessible to classical approaches. With regards to the downside of this technique, it’s almost unanimous accepted that it’s cost related. To write this article over 60 literature sources about the history and development of surgical robots also concerning case studies, animal and human trials and their results obtained throughout the past few years were reviewed. Numerous trials that analyze new surgical applications are undergoing and although the system has been mainly used for soft tissue small interventions, its limits are yet to be determined.
