Robots in healthcare already have a stunning 40 years history, yet there is an unprecedented rise nowadays in new systems and clinical applications [1]. Surgical robotics is entering new domains, reaching new levels of integration, requiring highly sophisticated manipulation skills and decision making - on both the human and the mechatronic ends. The newest generation of robots does not only function as an agile extension of the human eyes and hands, but also becoming a skillful and smart co-worker of their MD counterpart [2]. Current trends include the seamless integration of preoperative and intra-operative images along with the (limited) decision-support offered to the clinicians, both in terms of surgical planning and navigation. Employment of smart tools, in vivo direct and indirect diagnostic methods are also on the rise. Microsurgery applications have been empowered by stable robotic platform both for hands-on and teleoperational control modes. Some companies are already talking about the introduction of cognitive surgical robots, which may open the era of Surgery 4.0, where procedures are boosted by Surgical Data Science and supported by big data analytics and optimization. These and many other technological advancements are to be presented. An emerging pattern is the cooperation of eminent research institutions, which is proved to benefit a lot the whole community. A great example of that is the Da Vinci Research Kit (DVRK) community, in which 25 outstanding labs (including the IROB at Óbuda University) synchronize their research, and share the results in an open source platform, relying on the open architecture research version of the famous da Vinci Classic robot [3].
