Paper Abstract

We are privileged to be living in an era in which surgery is undergoing a profound change. Technology is a major part of this advance. The old `surgical interface', the eye and hand of the surgeon, is being replaced by a technologically advanced interface that will enhance the surgeon's capabilities while preserving the benefits of the minimally invasive approach. In this presentation we will review the technologies that are contributing to this progress.
