Summary:The primary objectives of this Health Technology Assessment (HTA) were to assess the clinical and cost-effectiveness of robotic surgery compared with open procedures and laparoscopic procedures. We conducted a systematic review to evaluate the clinical effectiveness of robotic surgery compared with open procedures and laparoscopic procedures, followed by a systematic review of economic evaluation studies. We also conducted a primary economic evaluation of robotic surgery in one indication from a Canadian perspective and assessed robotic surgery's potential impact on health services (population impact and budget impact) in Canada
