Looking back over the innovative surgical developments of the last century, electrosurgery is kind of old hat. With minimally invasive surgery, laser surgery, and a slough of specialty procedures coming into play in just the past decade or so, electrosurgery, with its first introduction nearly 80 years ago, hardly seems like an emerging technological field.

Nonetheless, the general consensus, both in the OR and out, is that this is the direction that surgery will be taking into the future.
