Purpose Advance knowledge of robotic telesurgery and applications for surgical simulation. Scope Explore applications of surgical robots to telesurgery, evaluate effectiveness of simulator devices, and develop designs for future simulator devices. Major Findings This research agreement resulted in the creation of multiple educational products or prototypes in the field of robotic surgery. Prototypes have been carried to product completion through additional investment by Adventist Health SystemSunbelt, Inc. dba Florida Hospital and are available either freely or for purchase on the internet. The experiments have also demonstrated the effectiveness of multiple simulator devices in the field of robotic surgery and measuring the skills of multiple populations with these devices. Finally, we have demonstrated that remote telesurgery between hospital systems in the USA which are equipped with modern IT infrastructures are currently capable of supporting safetelesurgery using surgical robots.
