Abstract: Purpose: The study aims at assessing the robotic surgery awareness among the patients and challenges concerning the cost involved in the current scenario. Design/Methodology/Approach: Convenience sampling was adopted to derive the sample size of 60 respondents, who were the specialized surgeons performing robotic surgery in the vicinity of urban Bangalore working in leading hospitals. The research is confined to the primary source of data collection considering awareness, communication, time, cost, affordability, recovery time, formal training, gender and number of surgeons as variables. Factor Analysis, Cluster Analysis, and Chi-square tests were applied to justify the hypothesis. Findings: Sampling and adequacy test resulted (KMO = 0.609) statistically significant at 0.01 per cent. Level of awareness the technology among the patients proves to be the most influencing factor for the success of robotic surgery with extraction loading being 0.817. The attitude of the surgeons and patients constitutes 36.85 per cent variance that is explained by the variables. There is no important statistical relationship between genders, cost of surgery, age of the surgeon and recovery time frame for the successful medical surgery. Originality/Value: Robotic surgery employs Artificial Intelligence to sustain tremors in the surgeon’s movements to facilitate accuracy in performing medical surgery. The future is extremely promising to witness the medical profession to ensure a sense of complex digital signatures associated with robotic and videoscopic procedures to provide actionable feedback to surgeons on the improvement and performance.
