Abstract

An important issue in robot-assisted surgery, is to investigate the possibility of using telesurgical procedures in the operating theater. In our laboratory, we are developing a system aimed at realizing such a kind of teleoperated surgery, using multiple robot assistance and force sensor information. The procedure will allow the surgical staff to avoid long time exposure to Xrays and to percept the real environment (i.e. forces exerted by the robot) during the insertion of a bioptic needle in the patient's back.
