Abstract

Robotic approaches in all surgical realms have seen tremendous growth over the previous few years. Taking advantage of 3-dimensional visualization, improved articulation, and the opportunity for an enhanced ability to suture/operate in the deep pelvis all provide theoretical and real advantages in colorectal surgery. This article reviews the potential advantages and disadvantages, current indications, future directions, and lessons learned for robotic approaches in colorectal surgery.
