New Technologies for Computer and Robot Assisted Surgery

About this Research Topic

This collection seeks to give a clear view on the status and recent trends of assistive surgical robotic technologies. It aims to support and propose concrete measures to accelerate research and innovation in this field. The collection is based on the proceedings of annual CRAS 2018 workshop (Joint Workshop on New Technologies for Computer and Robot Assisted Surgery) that originates from efforts to collaborate among European groups to achieve a critical mass in surgical robotics.

Robotic surgery is one of the most appealing fields of modern robotics. With over 3 decades history, more than 3.800 systems installed worldwide and over 600.000 robot-assisted interventions conducted per year, the field of robotic surgery is considered well-established. Despite these impressive figures and increasing popularity in research labs all over the world, the list of technological advances that made it into the operating room (OR) during this last decade is fairly limited. Long expected techniques such as 3D reconstruction, motion compensation, virtual guidance and haptic feedback, are still under study in many labs globally and have yet to make an appearance in the market. This collection looks to include contributions on the following themes:

• Medical Robotic Hardware
• Vision and AI Image Processing
• Sensing and Classification
• Medical Robotics: Ethics and Safety
• Medical Robotics: Training
• Microsurgery: Novel Robot Tools
• Rehabilitation and Assistive Technologies
• Continuum & Soft Robots for medical applications
• Handheld Robot-assisted Devices

This Research Topic welcomes contributions in the form of Original Research, Reviews, Perspectives, and Hypothesis and Theory article types.


Keywords: Robot Assisted Surgery, Novel Robotic Hardware and Sensors, Machine Learning, Cognitive Surgical Robotics, Human-Robot Collaboration and Shared Control, Variable Stiffness Robotic Systems


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
