Robotic surgery is a minimally invasive technological development that involves the use of robotic systems to aid in surgical procedures. It has been used to improve accuracy in operating rooms for around 15 years, including in heart, eye and prostate surgery. US health care giant Johnson & Johnson announced its collaboration with Google on surgical robotics.

The two companies said in a statement, "We would work to create an innovative robotic-assisted surgical platform capable of integrating advanced technologies with the goal of improving health care delivery in the operating room. We would seek to improve techniques for robotic-assisted surgery, a minimally invasive procedure that uses technology to give surgeons greater control, access and accuracy. The companies seek to develop new robotic tools and capabilities for surgeons and operating room professionals that integrate best-in-class medical device technology with leading-edge robotic systems, imaging and data analytics."
