This paper presents a versatile system that aims at enhancing minimally invasive robotic surgery through patient dependent optimized planning, realistic simulation and safe supervision. The underlying architecture of the proposed approach is presented, then each component is detailed and illustrated with experimental examples. In particular, an instantiation with the Da Vinci™ [1] robot for performing cardiac surgery is used as a federating case study.
