About this book

Robotics in General Surgery provides a comprehensive review of the current applications of the robotic platform in all the general surgery subspecialties. Additionally, for each subspecialty it serves as a procedure-oriented instruction manual in terms of technical details of procedures, including fundamentals of robot positioning and trocar placement, step-by-step description of procedures, comprehensive discussions of advantages, limitations, indications, and relative contraindications of using the robotic approach. The text also discusses the challenges and steps to overcoming these challenges in transitioning from a minimally invasive to a robotic practice/surgeon. Lastly, this volume addresses emerging technology in robotics and the impact that the robotics platform will have on not only practice of surgery, but also in the education of surgeons at all levels.

Written by experts in the field of robotic surgery, Robotics in General Surgery is a valuable resource for general surgeons of all levels including residents, fellows and surgeons already in practice.

Reviews

“This is a comprehensive textbook intended ‘to serve as a ‘how to’ reference of robotically performed procedures in general surgery.’ … The audience is practitioners and fellowship level trainees in the specialties that flow from general surgery. … This is a very high quality book that is a cut above the typical robotic surgery textbook. I believe it will become a classic in the field.” (Carol Scott-Conner, Doody's Book Reviews, May, 2015)
