The use of robots in the operating room is increasing due to the benefits associated with advanced surgical technologies. Robotic systems help in the accurate placement of pedicle screws in the spine and are improving rapidly. Robotic assistance in spine surgery is expected to help improve surgical safety and increase operating room capabilities and overall efficiency.1
