As in many surgical disciplines, advanced visual instruments such as robotic surgery and exoscope, which have gained a place in the light of technological developments in micro neurosurgery, have increasing popularity. Thanks to those types of instruments, it is foreseen that surgical interventions will be made as noninvasive as possible. Accordingly, a significant decrease in complication rates, shorter hospitalization times, and more satisfactory cosmetic results will be achieved. Although integrating these systems, which still have some disadvantages, into cranial surgery, which requires long-term work in a stable position, especially in very limited areas, has not been fully realized, they are considered promising devices by many authors in terms of ergonomics and surgical convenience. This article discusses a general review and evaluations in light of the current literature for robotic surgical instruments and exoscopes, whose properties, types, advantages and disadvantages are generally mentioned.
