Conclusions

Robotic assistance for microsurgical procedures in male infertility and urology appears to be a possible adjunct to standard microsurgery. It has several advantages including elimination of tremor, multi-view magnification, additional instrument arms, and enhanced dexterity with articulating instrument arms. The current literature supports that these procedures appear to be safe and feasible. However, larger, prospective studies are needed to demonstrate the clinical benefits over standard microsurgery.
