Robotic surgery is a frequently misunderstood term.
The current robotic systems are all known as master slave units.
This means that the surgeon has complete control of the movements of the robotic arms and instruments, but that the robotic technology means that a much greater instrument movement and dexterity can be achieved allowing for much greater accuracy of dissection.
