Abstract: The surgical world is experiencing a revolution brought about by the proliferation of minimally invasive techniques. These developments have had most impact on abdominal surgery and chest surgery, but there are ramifications affecting other fields as well. One feature of this change is the increasing dependence of surgeons on technology. Developments in video imaging, ultrasound and robotics are required to make complex endoscopic procedures surgeon-friendly, just as the minimally invasive approach has made surgery more patient-friendly. In the future, integration of stereo imaging systems, computers, microrobots and robotic manipulators will result in technically sophisticated but ergonomic operating systems that will allow surgeons to perform endoscopically almost any type of surgery that can be done today.
