This book presents a cross section of recent advances in various areas of surgery, with an emphasis on collaboration between the surgical and engineering communities. Twenty two peer reviewed papers are collected here, covering a broad spectrum of topics including information-guided surgery; organ transplant; enterogenesis; wireless capsule endoscopy; keratectomy; vitrectomy; cranio-maxillofacial, orthopedic, and dental surgeries; surgical robots; bioresorbable fixtures; cell-based medicine including tissue engineering for heart valve, pediatric cardiovascular, digestive, urinary, respiratory, musculoskeletal, nervous, integumentary and lymphatic systems, oral and maxillofacial procedures, and bioreactor design; operating time; smartphones; Radio Frequency Identification (RFID); and surgical tool management.
