Over the past several decades, minimally invasive surgery has become more prevalent because it does not require major incisions to the patient, allows for quicker healing, reduces post-operative pain, and may reduce wound complications. However, in comparison to open surgery, existing laparoscopic tools still limit the surgeon’s dexterity significantly. In contrast, during open surgery or hand-assisted laparoscopic surgery, the surgeon has the ability to easily grasp, retract, and manipulate organs as necessary.
