Abstract—Robot-assisted minimally invasive surgical systems overall large size and high cost limit the feasible use enable procedures with reduced pain, recovery time, and cases. Second, there are situations where access via a scarring compared to traditional surgery. While these straight path using rigid tools may pose a safety risk. improvements beneﬁt a large number of patients, safe access Finally, in order to accommodate a large range of to diseased sites is not always possible for specialized patient patients for a wide variety of procedures, the systems groups, including pediatric patients, due to their anatomical differences. We propose a patient-speciﬁc design
