Robotic Surgery: Trends in Urology

Robot-assisted surgeries are on the rise. What procedures have adopted the robotic technique as the preferred method?

In this infographic, we look at urological surgery – a specialty area where the adoption of robotic technology has made significant advancement globally. Since the first robot-assisted prostatectomy was performed in 2000, robotic surgical procedures in urology continue to grow rapidly. In countries such as Japan, the UK and Australia, the robotic technique is now more common than open and laparoscopic techniques for prostatectomy procedures.
