Abstract

Robotic surgery has revolutionized how surgeons think about minimally invasive surgery in the new century. No longer is robotic surgery only for science fiction novels. Robots can now be used for all types of minimally invasive procedures. In many cases, they bring benefits in ergonomics, visualization, and precision of action. While the current generation of robots is limited, the future is boundless. This book explores common general surgical procedures with the use of the da Vinci® surgical system, describes patient selection, surgical tech, robotic instrumentation and positioning and also guides the general surgeon in understanding robotic surgery and implementing it in their practice.
