The Future and Challenges of Surgical Technology Implementation and Patient Safety
Surgical practice is currently advancing at a rapid pace, driven by new advances in technology. Minimally invasive techniques, assisted by technologies such as the da Vinci robotic platform, per oral endoscopic myotomy, natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery (NOTES), as well as modern operating suite technologies are now becoming a part of the practice of surgery as well as the training of resident surgeons. Telementoring is enabling the continued education of practicing surgeons in new techniques across previously insurmountable geographic barriers. Newly discovered immune-modulating therapies are changing the way malignancies are approached by the surgical community and redefining the role of the surgeon in modern cancer therapy. These technological advances are leading a new era of surgery which will continue to change and grow in the coming years.
