Identifying barriers in telesurgery by studying current team practices in robot-assisted surgery

Abstract
This paper investigates challenges in current practices in robot-assisted surgery. In addition, by using the method of proxy technology assessment, we provide insights into the current barriers to wider application of robot-assisted telesurgery, where the surgeon and console are physically remote from the patient and operating team. Research in this field has focused on the financial and technological constraints that limit such application; less has been done to clarify the complex dynamics of an operating team that traditionally works in close symbiosis. Results suggest that there are implications for working practices in transitioning from traditional robot-assisted surgery to remote robotic surgery that need to be addressed, such as possible communication problems which might have a negative impact on patient outcomes.
