Surgical robots have relatively recently entered the medical field, particularly in gynecology, urology, and general surgery. However, the safety and clinical effectiveness of robot-assisted surgery (RAS) in the field of head and neck surgery has not been clearly established. This review evaluates to what degree robotic surgery could be applied in head and neck surgery, in which fields it is already in place and what benefits can be seen when compared to traditional surgery.
