Abstract:Surgical therapy is becoming increasingly complex. Besides new surgical techniques, sophisticated diagnostic methods and innovative interventional procedures must be integrated into the therapeutic concept to increase the efficacy of surgery. Accurate application of these techniques require close cooperation between surgeons, oher medical specialists, and technicians. Consequently, there is a significant need for structures promoting efficient communication, organziation, and interaction in surgical departments. New techniques developed from telecommunication and information technology enable the transeral of complex medical data at any time to any place and are therefore the basis for telemedical applications. Telemedicine and other new techniques such as virtual operation planning, simulation, and intraoperative navigation promise to increase the efficacy of surgical therapy in the future. This paper provides an overview of the application of telesurgery and currently available techniques.
