  Neurosurgery has customarily been at the cutting edge of propelling innovations, adjusting new strategies and gadgets effectively with an end goal to build the security and viability of brain surgery procedures. Among these adjustments is the surgical robot technology. This paper features a portion of the all the more encouraging frameworks in neurosurgical robotics, integrating brain surgical robots being used and being advanced. The reason for this paper is twofold, to address the most encouraging models for neurosurgical applications, and to examine a portion of the entanglements of robotic neurosurgery given the exceptional framework of the brain. The utilization of robotic assistance and input direction on surgical operations could improve the specialization of the experts during the underlying period of the expectation to absorb information.

Keywords: Medical and Surgical Robots; Surgical Applications; Brain Surgery; Minimally Invasive.
