Motivation and objective
As showed during the Eurosurge project (), there is a great number of research centres/universities dealing with autonomous and semi-autonomous surgical interventions around Europe. Eurosurge project launched the idea of creating a network for sharing development of common tools related to surgical robotics: now there exist platforms and share repositories to effectively sharing research outcomes in order to speed up European research in the field.
This last point also takes advantage of current European actions to connect researchers in the field of robotic surgery, such as the DVRK European community, which is currently taking common initiatives for sharing results on the application to the da Vinci robot.
Philippa Cheetham, MD from Columbia University Medical Center, New York educate the patient and his family on prostate cancer and the role of robotic prostatectomy â the curative robotic surgery operation that allows the surgeon to remove the whole prostate gland using the state of the art DaVinci surgical robotic system.
