Streamlined integration of computer technologies into the surgical domain promises to open new opportunities in developing surgical techniques. Surgical Process Models (SPMs) and surgical ontologies currently under development are believed to make objective assessment and planning possible in the surgical practice. By automating subtask level ontological terms, these methods can be reused in a variety of surgical procedures, bringing autonomous surgery closer. In this work, the subtask level ontological term blunt dissection has been implemented in a computer vision-driven manner to demonstrate that automation on this level is feasible. Linking further building blocks of surgery could mean the beginning of automated functions for surgery.
