By: Zander Brais Robotic Surgery
Although robots are not be able to perform all types of surgeries yet, they can perform quite a few, and they do so with extreme efficiency.   Robotic surgery systems are used in the fields of orthopedics (joints), neurology (brain), urology (gall bladder and prostate) and cardiology (heart).

The following are the areas of surgery, along with numerous references describing the surgery process.
