Eng. D. Trojaniello is presenting new perspectives in robotic surgery: the SARAS project.

 

SARAS goal is to develop the next-generation of surgical robotic systems that will allow a single surgeon to execute Robotic Minimally Invasive Surgery without the need of an expert assistant surgeon.

The robot will be called solo-surgery system and will consist of a pair of cooperating and autonomous robotic arms holding surgical instruments. The SARAS system will entirely take over the role of the assistant surgeon.
