In recent years, minimally invasive surgeries have been undergoing a revolution with the development of robotic assisted surgery. Due to the anatomical region in which many operations are carried out, in small spaces through natural orifices in the body such as the mouth, the nose or the ear, as well as the esthetic discomfort caused by external scars in the head and neck, the use of robotic assisted surgery in the field of head and neck surgery is gaining momentum and is being implemented more and more in Israel and around the globe. Most of the operations currently performed in otolaryngology are carried out through the oral cavity or through distant and camouflaged skin cuts. In this article we will review the new applications and technologies in the field of surgical robotics in otolaryngology - head and neck surgeries, as well as summarize the experience of the Department of Otorhinolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery at the Rabin Medical Center in robot assisted surgeries.
