As robotic surgery continues to advance and become a more established method in cardiothoracic and other surgical specialties, concerns have arisen surrounding cybersecurity. Healthcare systems are particularly vulnerable to cybersecurity attacks, and the complex nature of robotic surgery systems creates additional risk. To mitigate that risk, it is important to recognize system complexity, regularly update software, follow cybersecurity best practices, and increase transparency with robotic surgery patients.
