This work was supported in part by NIH grant #1R21EB009143-01A1 and Johns Hopkins Hospital internal funds. A collaborative agreement with Intuitive Surgical, Inc. with no financial support provided the da Vinci robotic instruments and access to the application programming interface data. The sponsors played no role in study development, data collection, interpretation of data, or analysis.

Data collection was supported by donated surgical instruments, and a collaborative agreement with Intuitive Surgical, Inc. provided access to the application programming interface motion data. Neither agreement included any financial support. The study sponsors played no role in collection, analysis, or interpretation of data. Jeremy Richmon, MD provided proctoring services for robotic surgery training to trainee surgeons. Such (compensated) proctoring is unrelated to the presented work and does not create any conflicts of interest. Joseph Califano, MD, is the Director of Research of the Milton J. Dance Head and Neck Endowment. The terms of this arrangement are being managed by the Johns Hopkins University in accordance with its conflict of interest policies.
Authors Martin Curry, DO, Jeremy Richmon, MD, and Rajesh Kumar, PhD, designed the study and were involved in data acquisition, developed the analysis methods, and performed the evaluation. Anand Malpani, BTech, Amod Jog, BTech, and Thomas Tantillo, BS, were involved in the data collection. Authors Anand Malpani, BTech, and Rajesh Kumar, PhD, performed the automated data analysis. Authors Jeremy Richmon, MD, Rajesh Kumar, PhD, Ray Blanco, MD, Patrick K. Ha, MD, and Joseph Califano, MD were involved in clinical interpretation of the data and analysis.
