Robot Assisted Thoracic Surgery Procedure

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The advantages of robot-assisted surgery include true 3-dimensional imaging with binocular glasses and the use of multiarticular forceps that allow the performance of high-precision operations. This report described the surgical techniques of robot assisted major pulmonary resection and subxiphoid robot-assisted thymectomy. Future developments in the field of robotic engineering will lead to the creation of systems that allow for more advanced surgical techniques. We hope that robotic assisted surgery will be safely introduced into many medical facilities.
