IMPORTANCE Artificial Intelligence (AI) is driving significant changes in surgical planning and navigation. However, the potential role of AI in surgery still requires exploration. Available data shows a promising reduction in surgical trauma and improved patient recovery through the use of AI. AI has been a subject of speculation for many decades and research is still focused on the development of this field. Its use in surgery took a longer time than other specialties, however, the data is promising and points towards a revolution in surgical education, training and practice.
