Robotic surgery is a method to perform surgery by attaching very small tools to the robotic arms. The robotic arms were controlled with the computer by the surgeon. There are several types of robotic surgeries available. Some of which include Robotic gynecologic surgery, Robotic arm system for partial knee replacement surgery, Robotic cardiovascular surgery, Robotic urologic surgery, Robotic head and neck surgery, Robotic abdominal surgery and colon and rectal surgery. In robot assisted surgery, surgery procedures were conducted small incisions using robotic system. By this way surgeons can perform complex surgeries with more precision, accuracy and flexibility. High-impact journals are those considered to be highly influential in their respective fields. The impact factor of journal provides quantitative assessment tool for grading, evaluating, sorting and comparing journals of similar kind. It reflects the average number of citations to recent articles published in science and social science journals in a particular year or period, and is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. It is first devised by Eugene Garfield, the founder of the Institute for Scientific Information.
