Robotics in Cleft Surgery: Origins, Current Status and Future Directions.

The field of robotic surgery is an exciting and growing field that has bolstered its way to become a mainstream application in a number of surgical disciplines. The application of robotic surgery in cleft surgery is novel and has captivated many with the benefit it provides: the slender and small arms with wrist articulation at the instrument tip; motion scaling; tremor elimination; and high fidelity, three-dimensional visualization make the robot a very attractive platform for use in confined spaces with small surgical targets. The story of the origin of robotic surgery in cleft surgery is an interesting one, and one that has arisen from other allied surgical specialities to render robotic cleft surgery as its own specialised field. A field that has coined its own terms and has demonstrated a number of applications for its use. This review details the origins of robotic cleft surgery, its evolution and its current status and elaborates on future directions to enhance its application.
