Robotically assisted stereotactic surgery

Record ID 32005000046
Authors' objectives:

Robotically assisted stereotactic surgery is a procedure that involves the use of implanted metallic markers, bony landmarks, or adhesive skin markers to provide reference points for precise three-dimensional localization and surgical or radiosurgical intervention of a given treatment site with the aid of a computerized robotic system for one or more steps in the procedure. Robotic-assisted stereotactic surgery has been introduced for a variety of indications, including intracranial and extracranial malignant and benign tumors, vascular malformations, and neurologic diseases, including trigeminal neuralgia and movement disorders.
