Introduction & Objective: Robotic surgery is one of the novel and effective technologies in the medical world, about which a lot of research and development at national and international levels has been done. The purpose of this study is to investigate the scientific output of robotic surgery with a global view to determine its true position and to encourage researchers in this field.
Materials & Methods: This research was done through a scientometric method. Data were extracted by searching through Web of Science Citation database and using the built-in engine to extract the needed data. Further, Excel software was used to draw the tables and charts in this study.
Results: The findings showed that there were 2718 worldwide records in robotic surgery subject area. Respectively, The United States, China, and Japan are the top three countries in the list and the IR Iran is ranked 15th. The top ten universities in this subject area have 618 records, which is nearly 23% of all records. The scientific production process in this subject area has started since 1990 and has had a moderate pace since 2001, which has been going upward with various fluctuations over the years. More than 43% of all scientific output in this subject area has been published in ten conferences or journals. Overall, more than 70% of the scientific outputs have been published in conferences.
Conclusions: Robotic surgery is one of the new and growing technologies that the medical community at both national and international levels will have to use and embark on. On this basis, the results show that scientific output is this issue does not have a high frequency and few countries, universities, authors, and publications have addressed this issue.
